Good Deed Entertainment is taking home Some Freaks, acquiring worldwide distribution rights for the misfit teen romance.
Written and directed by Ian MacAllister-McDonald, the film starring Thomas Mann and Lily Mae Harrington will be released in select theaters and on demand platforms Aug. 4.
Some Freaks follows two high school seniors — the one-eyed Matt (Mann) and plus-size Jill (Harrington) — who fall in love before graduation. When Jill moves cross-country for college, she undergoes a major physical transformation, which surprises Matt when he visits her. Their relationship is further tested by the distance between them, as they confront who they are, who they were and who everyone thinks they’re supposed to be.
Marin Ireland, Ely Henry and Lachlan Buchanan are also featured in the film, which marks MacAllister-McDonald’s directorial debut.
Lovell Holder, Mia Chang, Tim Harms and Ryan Smith produced, with Neil LaBute, Clark Peterson, Alan Pao, Yingzhi Peng and Monica Aguirre Diez Barroso as executive producers.
