"...Just a good film that will make you cry, if you're the type"
This is NOT a Gillian Anderson/Sharon Stone film as billed.Well I watched this... and I liked it.
This in itself is strange as I normally hate kids in films.
Based on the book 'Freak the mighty' it tells the story of two kids who becomes friends one is crippled genius (freak) and one is a stupid hulk of a kid (mighty), and how they as friends become, metaphorically, one person (Hence Freak the mighty) One makes up for the others lack of brains and the other makes up for the others lack of body.
The two leads performances are superb.. much beyond expectation. But the biggest surprise is in Gillian Andersons cameo as a drunk southern lady. This lady can act, there is no Scully present in this role. (Sharon Stone as Freak's mother isn't bad either)
I did like this film, very much.. It isn't the best ever made, neither the worst.. It is just a good film, that will make you cry (If you are the type to)
The story and the acting are the film, not the direction, sound etc..I would say, though, this is not a cinema film. More of a video one.
