Based on the novel of same name by James St. James, Trudie Styler‘s directorial debut, Freak Show, will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on 25 February 2019 courtesy of Network Releasing.
The film stars Alex Lawther, Abigail Breslin, AnnaSophia Robb, Larry Pine, Ian Nelson, Celia Weston, Laverne Cox and Bette Midler.
Billy Bloom (Lawther) is one-of-a-kind: a fabulous, glitter-bedecked, gender-bending teenager whose razor-sharp wit is matched only his by his outrageous, anything-goes fashion sense. When his glamorous mother (Midler) is forced to send him to live with his straight-laced father (Pine), Billy finds himself a diva-out-of-water at his new ultra-conservative high school. Undaunted by the bullies who don’t understand him, the fearless Billy sets out to make a big statement in his own inimitable way: challenging the school’s reigning mean girl (Breslin) for the title of homecoming queen. This proudly offbeat comedy is an irresistible ode to outsiders and nonconformists of all stripes.
