I just saw Dear Frankie October, 15th and was more than delighted in
the film. It is fantastically moving, and even though it is not filmed
with enormous 'dramatics', as the blockbuster Hollywood films are, it
is so amazingly 'real' - and thus captivating. I heard that the first
screening left the actors stunned to wait so long for the standing
ovation to subside - I can see why.
The acting is superb, but the story is marvelous. It is a film with a not-so-simple message - one that moves the soul. One moment you are entertained with quick-witted humor, and the next moment your heart fills with compassion. It's simplicity is one of it's main high points and the absence of Hollywood "flash" is refreshing!
Heart-warming and pleasantly humorous - I would recommend it to anyone!
I loved it and plan on seeing it again. 5 stars for Dear Frankie!
