If you thought Ugly Betty you haven't seen any- thing yet! Randall a hardworking yet fragile soul faces his inner demons behind a drag queen persona while pursuing the dream of a lifetime. Like the title character on Ugly Betty, Randall O'Brien knows the difficulties of following your heart and pursuing ones dreams. Take a peek inside his little world of spiritual masks, but- terflies, angels and fabulous wigs -- wigs fash- ioned for an elegant yet freaky-looking woman named Sophia that Randall dresses up as. As the opportunity of a lifetime knocks, inter- ferences both real and imagined threaten to derail a major ticket to success. From a sim- ple answering machine to an out-of-this-world human attraction, a tender soul threatens to crumble, leading to a path of self-destruction. Ten Randall's true spirit must face this gruesome static in his mind before it is too late. "Looking back on this whole artistic ex- perience, I can honestly say that Freak's subtext is about bullying and how it af- fected an individual from their childhood and attracted it into their adulthood." --- Eric Casaccio "A memorable little gem." --- Edge Media, Boston www.freakthefilm.com www.facebook.com/freakthefilm twitter.com/freakthefilm
