Here is the trailer for Trudie Styler’s debut film Freak Show featuring an electric ensemble cast. The film opens January 12th, 2018 in New York City, and January 19th, 2018 in Los Angeles from IFC FILMS.
Freak Show stars Alex Lawther (Billy Bloom), Abigail Breslin (Lynette), AnnaSophia Robb (Blah Blah Blah), Ian Nelson (Flip), Celia Weston (Florence), Willa Fitzgerald (Tiffany), Laverne Cox (Felicia Watts), John McEnroe (Coach Carter), Charlotte Ubben (Sesame), Mickey Sumner (Dr. Veronica Vickers), Michael Park (Principal Onnigan), Daniel Bellomy (Bo-Bo), Christopher Dylan White (Bernard), Walden Bryan Hudson (Bib), Larry Pine (William), and Bette Midler (Muv).
Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther, The Imitation Game) 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 (Bette Midler) is forced to send him to live with his straight-laced father (Larry 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 (Abigail Breslin) for the title of homecoming queen. This proudly offbeat comedy is an irresistible ode to outsiders and nonconformists of all stripes. With Laverne Cox.
