What more do we have to tell to convince you to see “Frank” when it opens later this summer? We called it a “terrific and sublime experience” when we saw it at the Sundance Film Festival, and have brought you trailers, interviews and the single “I Love You All” and more from the movie. And today, we have another two-minute clip, and yes, it’s an excuse to remind you this is coming and you need to see it.
Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, the movie is inspired by the real life Frank Sidebottom, in this story of an enigmatic, papier maché wearing band leader (played by Michael Fassbender) who goes with this merry band of misfits to a cabin to make an album, following his various eccentric whims. And in this clip, we see some of the oddball instructions that lead to musical breakthroughs (of a kind) while the whole endeavour is in danger of going broke.
“Frank” opens in theatres August 22nd. Watch below.
