Freak City tells the moving story of a young woman, played by Samantha Mathis, who is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and is institutionalized by her family. Alone and feeling abandoned she struggles to regain her sense of dignity and independence by bonding with a wide assortment of fellow patients. Other residents at the home include Jonathan Silverman as a blind man, Marlee Maitlin, a slightly retarded woman, and singer-actress Natalie Cole as a blues singer injured in an accident and left with severe mental and emotional challenges. Working together they share many funny and sometimes bittersweet moments and celebrate overcoming their challenges as a family brought together by circumstance.Written by

IT WASN'T A MOVIE I WATCHED - IT WAS SOME PEOPLES LIVES I SAW!
IT WASN'T A MOVIE I WATCHED - IT WAS SOME PEOPLES LIVES I SAW! I think Freak City is an amazing movie. All the actors made their absolutely best. How easy is it to act someone who is so completely different? That question been made up in my mind during the time I saw the film. It is after a movie like this you can see which people who are good actors or not. An actor I think is really great in the film is Peter Sarsgaard as Cal. I think his role is really difficult to play. He made a fantastic job in the movie and he is very real and believable. I recommend this movie to all kind of persons. The movie is even funny in some scenes. I think the film would be seen by more people in the world, it is really a GREAT movie.
