The original script was mainly based in Sweden. It was switched to Ireland largely because director Lenny Abrahamson was more familiar with the Irish landscape. See more »
When Frank falls on stage during the performance at SXSW, we can see he hits the head on the left side. When Jon goes to help him, the head is fractured on the left. But on the next shot, and in the following scenes at the motel, the fracture is now on the right side of the head. See more »
'Frank (2014)' is never quite what you expect, telling its tale of misfit rockstars with just the right amount quirkiness. It's funny but it also has a really serious edge to it, dealing with difficult themes throughout. It does some interesting things with its protagonist, which I won't spoil, and is constantly engaging. Its messages are wonderfully nuanced and, in a way, antithetical to the sort of stuff the genre tends to peddle. It's an odd film, for sure, but it's entertaining and has something important to say. 7/10
