A Showcase for Kruger
17 September 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frankie is a good example of how much can be achieved on a limited budget. Shot for only about three thousand dollars (Kruger was cast before making it big), this film is an intriguing meditation on the impact that the fashion industry has on young models. It's far from perfect... some scenes drag on for longer than they need to, but there is plenty to keep the viewer satisfied. Most importantly of all, Diane Kruger confirms that she knows how to act. In the critical central role, Kruger conveys a believability that draws you in and makes you empathize with her plight... only 26 years old and already at the end of her career in an industry that draws young women in, chews them up and spits them out like a mere commodity. Definitely worth viewing.
