BL Movie Freak Show (2017)
It’s a great little film with a big shouting message: “Live and let live.
All the world’s a stage. I am what I am. Be what you wanna be!”
This will certainly polarize opinions. The young Alex Lawther (The Imitation Game, Departure) gives a damn fine, credible performance as Billy Bloom but, a rich-kid with gender identity issues.
But it is unclear why was Bette Midler so mind-blowing unused. It’s Bette Midler for Christ’s sake. You got her – use her! She ain’t cheap! The script was crying out for it!
Freak Show embraces and celebrates individuality and diversity.
Debut feature as a director of Trudie Styler, Sting’s wife.
