A clerk in a government agency finds his unenviable life takes a turn for the horrific with the arrival of a new co-worker who is both his exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and seductive with women.
A corrupt, junkie cop with Borderline Personality Disorder attempts to manipulate his way through a promotion in order to win back his wife and daughter while also fighting his own borderline-fueled inner demons.
A story that follows a New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment), apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer), and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possibility dwindles.
Macbeth, the Thane of Glamis, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders his king and takes the throne for himself.
Although the biggest chunk of the movie is set in Ireland and both stars of the film are Irish (Michael Fassbender and Domhnall Gleeson) neither one of them is Irish in the movie. Fassbender's character is American (specifically from Kansas) and Gleeson's character is British. See more »

Your furthest corners?

Did ANYONE involved in this terrible film actually ever see Frank Sidebottom other than a picture of him? Why is he speaking with an American accent? Why is he portrayed as this enigmatic figure? Why is he not singing awful songs?
I would have preferred to see a biopic about the ACTUAL Frank, whose story is far more interesting.
Also the head was "too good" in that it looked well made as opposed to a crappy papier mache mask.
And no little frank?
Maggie Gylenhall is perhaps the least attractive human being alive.
Domnhall Gleeson gives a great performance though.
