Life and career
Freeman was born to a Jewish family in New York. Her father worked in finance. The family moved to London when Freeman was eleven. After taking her A-level examinations while boarding at the Cambridge Centre for Sixth-form Studies, she read English Literature at St Anne's College, Oxford, and edited Cherwell. After a year in Paris, she worked on the fashion desk of The Guardian for eight years.
Her first book, The Meaning of Sunglasses: A Guide to (Almost) All Things Fashionable, was published in 2008. Be Awesome: Modern Life for Modern Ladies followed in 2013. According to Jennifer Lipman in The Jewish Chronicle, it is "a detailed attack on how women are both portrayed and conditioned to act in public life". In 2015, she released the book Life Moves Pretty Fast.
In her books, Freeman discusses cinema, particularly from the 1980s, and she occasionally appears in the media to discuss films. She has said that her favourite film is the original Ghostbusters and that she has collected books and articles connected to the film.
