      • FRANK


        from I Like Films, Me Added

        Highly acclaimed promo director Richard Heslop’s debut feature ‘Frank’ is a dark, compelling tale of loss, loneliness and redemption, laced with moments of black humor and surreal fantasy. At the heart of the film is a performance of remarkable subtlety and empathy from Darren Beaumont as Frank, tormented by a painful yearning for companionship in a cruel and uncaring world. Con O Neill (Joe Meek in Telstar) is brilliantly edgy and dangerous in his role as Frank’s malevolent alter ego Fidel. Stunning cinematography captures perfectly the melancholic beauty of the decaying British coastal resort in which the story is set. Heslop’s unique visionary style and bold characterisation combine to deliver a highly original film that encapsulates the mood of our time and will resonate with audiences long into the future.
