Check out the trailer that Netflix has released for Freaks – You’re One of Us, a quirky-looking German film about people with superpowers.
The plot follows a meek young mother (Cornelia Gröschel) who discovers that the meds she’s been on for years has actually been holding back her superpowers. She’s soon meeting other gifted individuals and, of course, becoming a target as she begins to uncover a widespread conspiracy.
There are superheroes and superpowers everywhere you look in film and television – and Netflix already has a ton. Fingers crossed this one has a unique enough approach to stand out from the pack.
Freaks – You’re One of Us, directed by Felix Binder (The Red Band Society, Lerchenberg) and also starring Tim Oliver Schultz and Wotan Wilke Möhring, will be streaming on Netflix from September 3rd.
Official synopsis for Freaks – You’re One of Us:
Wendy (Cornelia Gröschel), a young working class mom, realizes that years of medication have suppressed her latent supernatural powers. She meets a stranger, Marek (Wotan Wilke Möhring), with the same background, and finds out that her co-worker, Elmar (Tim Oliver Schultz), is also similarly gifted. Question is: what will she do with her new powers?
