Movie Info

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.

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (1)

  • Ian MacAllister McDonald's Some Freaks captures high school/college agony without transmuting it into thank-God-we-survived-it nostalgia.

    Aug 4, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Some Freaks explores the way in which those who are teased and tortured for being different can turn on other outsiders, and the emotional trauma of that poisonous isolation.

  • All the actors are good, but Harrington is remarkable. It's not just the physical changes in her character, but the genuineness with which she inhabits her.

    Aug 3, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Playwright Ian MacAllister-McDonald's debut feature is a refreshingly grounded, unsentimental yet empathetic slice of D-list teenage life that goes a bit overboard in its final act.

  • What seems like an ordinary teenage comedy about cliques and bullying on the surface is actually a modestly perceptive and touching glimpse into the ways in which we transition from adolescence into adulthood.

  • The deeper Some Freaks wades into what becomes a series of sadistic and masochistic humiliations, the more McDonald's film begins to feel schematic.
