Storyline

When one-eyed high school senior Matt falls meets 250 lb Jill, he falls more in love than he ever thought possible. However, when graduation comes and Jill moves cross-country to go to college, she then loses over 50 lbs - much to Matt's surprise when he arrives to visit her. While Matt struggles to accept Jill's new body, Jill begins to question whether Matt is really the man she wants to date. As the distance widens between them, the characters are propelled onto a collision course with brutality and loss, forcing them to confront who they are, who they were, and who everyone thinks they're supposed to be.

A good story
14 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Some Freaks is a love story between two people who are essentially outcasts in their environment. You will enjoy it if you are looking for something that is different from most mainstream romantic stories.

Some people argued that being overweight or wearing an eyepatch does not make a person a freak and that the film presented the idea of that in a false way. The two main characters are not freaks because of their physical appearance but probably perceive themselves as ones in my opinion. It is hard to feel normal when your peers push you away and you keep hearing mean comments wherever you turn. The need to change and belong may become a necessity even if that means suppressing your personality and becoming like people you actually do not like. The characters are in that age where they care what other people have to say about them, they might pretend to be strong but everyone at that age cares, those who actually do not are rare and quite blessed.

All of that was portrayed well in my opinion. It is true that there are some clichés present but it does not distort the message of the story which is the most important thing. Hats of to all the actors for doing a wonderful job as well.

Definitely recommended if you are looking for a love story that feels a bit more real that most of them out there.
