Freak Show review -an unapologetic celebration of self-identity
Charlotte Hunt at Southampton, University of 28th June 2018
Verdict: “If life kicks you, you just kick higher” – a film for those struggling to find their place.In an unapologetic celebration of individuality and identity, Freak Show delivers a highly relevant message in today’s society.
The film follows genderqueer teenager Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther) as he navigates his way through a new, conservative High School. Along the way, Bloom encounters the cut-throat reality of unaccepting high school culture and decides to run for homecoming queen in defiance of those against him.Freak Show’s biggest strength is its central character and the undeniably passionate performance given by Alex Lawther. Known for his other roles as Billy Moon (Goodbye Christopher Robin), a young Alex Turing (The Imitation Game) and self-proclaimed psychopath James (The End of the F***cking World), Lawther once again steps into an ‘outcast’ type role, but by no means gives the same performance.Rather, his emotional and eccentric transformation into Billy Bloom proves his versatility and ability to dominate the screen regardless of who he is working alongside of – even the likes of Bette Midler – cementing himself well and truly within the surge of fresh new talent emerging in the industry.

BETTE MIDLER SLAMS HOLLYWOOD FOR BEING AGEIST TOWARDS WOMEN
The star revealed she was irritated not to be asked to return to the Hocus Pocus remake
Bette Midler has slammed Hollywood for its ageist and sexist attitude to women.
The iconic singer and actress has starred in a number of hit movies including The First Wives Club, Beaches and of course, Disney’s Hocus Pocus – plus she steals the show in her new movie Freak Show which is out today (June 22).
However, news has began circulating about a remake of the 1993 hit Halloween favourite – which also starred Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Njamy – and although all the original stars, who played the Sanderson witches, are all up for returning to their iconic roles, the studio has decided to cast younger stars.

‘Freak Show’ movie review: If John Hughes were alive today …
Updated Jan 30, 9:41 AM; Posted Jan 30, 9:41 AM
Ask anyone who was a teenager in the 1980s, and they’ll tell you that if one filmmaker more than any other seemed to be speaking directly to them, it was John Hughes. The maker of such films as “The Breakfast Club,” “Sixteen Candles” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” — while perhaps not a technical master of the filmmaking arts — knew a whole lot about how to talk to kids.
