frank 1Michael Fassbender is the man inside the papier maché head of Chris Sievey, better known to his fans as Frank Sidebottom. Frank, the film, tells a fictionalised story following the relationships between eccentric musicians, drawn from real life experiences of its screenwriter and Frank Sidebottom band member, Jon Ronson.

Maggie Gyllenhaal plays Frank’s potentially psychotic sidekick Clara and Domhnall Gleeson is Jon, a young keyboard player, who may have bitten off more than he can chew when he joins the unpronounceable and cult-like Soronprfbs. A strikingly original film about crafting an artistic identity – by any means necessary.

UK/Ireland; 2014; 95 mins.

“In a funny yet poignant film, Michael Fassbender’s turn as cult character Frank Sidebottom proves liberating rather than limiting.”  Mark Kermode, The Guardian.
