A comedy-drama, King Rat examines the possibility that years after graduation – whether it’s ten years or thirty – we may be stuck with the same issues we had before crossing that stage at commencement.
User Reviews: Right off the bat, it was great to see Burt Young on screen again.
King Rat conveys an eloquent blend of what it means to be soul-searching while attending college, and soul-searching after spending a successful decade or more in the real world. The film helped foster the notion that, no matter where you are in life, how far you’ve come, or how much you’ve succeeded and/or failed, not one of us ever truly becomes an expert at life.
King Rat helped me appreciate the significance of every moment of every day to a greater degree. It emboldened in my mind why it is important to never abandon the "helm of my boat" in life, but instead, to continue to proceed forward with the surety that I will either succeed or fail based on my own volition. After all, it’s how we, each one of us, meet’s life’s challenges that adds to the complexity of who we are, who we will become, and in many ways, the paths we will blaze.
