Description

Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther, The Imitation Game) is one-of-a-kind: a fabulous, glitter-bedecked, gender-bending teenager whose razor-sharp wit is matched only his by his outrageous, anything-goes fashion sense. When his glamorous mother (Bette Midler) is forced to send him to live with his straight-laced father (Larry Pine), Billy finds himself a diva-out-of-water at his new ultra-conservative high school. Undaunted by the bullies who don't understand him, the fearless Billy sets out to make a big statement in his own inimitable way: challenging the school's reigning mean girl (Abigail Breslin) for the title of homecoming queen. This proudly offbeat comedy is an irresistible ode to outsiders and nonconformists of all stripes. With Laverne Cox.

    I wasn't sure what I would think of this movie going in but I'm so glad I checked it out. It reminds us don't judge a book by its cover there may be an aweseome person inside that you are missing out on getting to know! The only part of the movie I didn't like was when it comes out that the mom was actually the one who couldn't accept Billy the way he was!!! Bette Midler played the part well though.

    I absolutely loved this movie. Both beautiful and powerful. I'm an old queen and can relate to so much in this film. I read many of the hate-filled comments and never forget that we have come so far, but our journey isn't over. Open your minds and don't simply "tolerate" the freaks, celebrate them! To those that hate others who are different I ask "what are you coming out as?"

    Why would you try to normalize this degeneracy? The LGBT crowd is already bad enough, the last thing they need is a film (good or bad) that encourages their terrible behavior and ideas.
  • A must see for adults as well as teens!! Honest look into this genre!

    Firt off i want to say this boy can act!!He is also veryintelligent with a great sense of humor that most kids just don't get it. he has his own style and fashion like no other.. This movie has many true colors of the nature on many things. He is with his mom,by the way is a loving and talent in the music arts category. This NOT like other movies that is fake, sex , drugs.....Stupidity in all genres thease days. It'ts funny how the rocky horror show has been liked for longer than most born, including myself 50's. I grew up listening to David Bowie, Queen[Freddy M.}.which i still see kids just loving certain songs, Culture Club,Judas preist,and many others that were icons with real talent. I think for the most part it is a fab so to speak today. The main thing is that he brings out the fashion, and will go to no end to show it. He moves in with is dad that i think most old school were not keen,and overlooked many predjudice of this.Another thing is he comes from wealthy parents. He in a sense still does not hide from his father.at the same time has a fear of and amonst the kids in highschool. I would recomend this to anyone.

    Billy Bloom represents those of us who were out of place, misunderstood, and bullied in high school. Anyone who ever felt that way will identify with this story. If you enjoyed the film and haven’t read the book yet I highly recommend it. The author, James St. James, is fabulous (darling) and you won’t regret it!! (Also check out Party Monster aka Disco Bloodbath).

    I hated Mauv. “ Bette Milder “ in this! Bette Played the character great though. LOVE HER AS A ACTRESS! But Mauv What a horrible mother! Fake people only hurt other people. But i love freak show. As a Transgender women myself. I understand these struggles. Even though i look a little more like conventional women. Im lucky that way. I still understand being different & standing out. As i do on my facebook. Im 37 & Im proud of who i am. Their for im proud of what i am. Love yourself & others eventually will too. But at the end of this i wanna say “ she “ looked fabulous. What a Really great movie. For all us FREAK SHOWS! PS: we all know to stop listening to humbug rotten tomatoe🍅🍆 reviewers! What the hell do they know anyway! But their tanking a lot of great movies these days. Beside MARVEL, DC MOVIES. NERDS 🤓 WITH A KEYBOARD & ROTTEN TOMATOE🍅 ACCOUNT! SAD 😢
