CFF 2019: Emile Hirsch, Bruce Dern, and Amanda Crew are FREAKS

This year’s Chattanooga Film Festival kicked off with a bunch of great films and Freakswas the first movie that I lined up for my own viewing pleasure. Out of the few movies that were playing around this time, I was most interested by its enigmatic description and crazy cast. When I checked the IMDB I was shocked to see Emile Hirsch, Bruce Dern, and Amanda Crew in a movie together. Also, there was very little fanfare around this movie, but still brought out a half full crowd at noon on a Friday. That all being said, its a solid movie that is enjoyable but is never fully realized. I wanted this film to go darker and deeper into its world, but we never quite make it. We do get some great performances and a concept that I didn’t see coming.
