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

A Touching and Beautiful Film
5 June 2017 | by Ashlynn2317See all my reviews

I first saw Frank vs God at the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival in November of 2014. I was very excited to see this film and I will say that after seeing it...I am still excited about it! I have been telling all of my family and friends that this is a film that is definitely worth seeing. David Frank (Henry Ian Cusick) is a man who lost everything that mattered to him. He lost his wife, his home, his dog...things were not going well for him. One day he takes matters into his own hands and he decides to sue god for damages to house that were caused by a tornado. This one event sets up the rest of the film. I can promise you, there will be laughter and tears throughout the whole thing. It is a beautiful film with a very important message. I remember sitting in the theater crying and questioning my own beliefs and questioning why certain things have happened in my life. Regardless of your own religion, background, beliefs etc. you will be able to relate to this film and I promise that you will enjoy it. I will also say, as a Henry Ian Cusick supporter, this is Ian's best work to date. He is good in every role of his but this one is different. He gives an outstanding performance as David Frank and this performance makes me proud to support a man with such incredible talent. So, if you are looking for a funny and heart warming film to watch give Frank vs. God a chance. You won't be disappointed!
