Storyline

When we meet David Frank he is a mess. His spirit shattered by the death of his wife, this formerly successful corporate attorney spends days in his bathrobe with his only real companion, his beloved bulldog, Brutus. While David's away a tornado hits and despite his heroic efforts, he watches helplessly as the dark funnel of destruction sucks up the house, and Brutus, like some Wizard of Oz nightmare - the punishing finger of God. Then, adding insult to injury, the Insurance Company tells him they won't pay because the damage falls under the 'Act of God' clause in his policy. David is livid. But then he gets the bright idea to sue God and His representatives as co-defendants. After a farcical yet poignant series of depositions, the trial commences. Fueled by a megalomaniac and opportunistic judge, a beautiful but damaged defense attorney, and David Frank's own sharply-honed legal gymnastics, the "God Trial" stirs up a frenzy of passions. What starts as a crazy, radical stunt ... Written by Anonymous

Could watch this film over and over again...and will!
5 June 2017 | by sistahic07See all my reviews

Had the good fortune to see this film 3 times at various film festivals and each time it grows dearer to me. I'm so excited it's finally going to get an official release on iTunes and on Demand. It's simply a beautiful film about love, loss, doubt and faith. Add in just the right amount of humor too and you have a film that will have you laughing and crying and certainly leave you with the feeling you've just had a wonderful viewing experience! Can't say enough about the wonderful acting of Henry Ian Cusick. He's a master at his craft and once more delights the viewer in every scene. Ever Carradine too is lovely and a joy to watch as well. From the writing to the direction (thank you Stewart Schill!) and to the talented cast, Frank VS God will surprise and entertain you and leave you feeling so good you watched it. Do yourself a favor and don't miss Frank VS God!
