Amazing Film!
30 September 2016 | by jasontweintraubSee all my reviews

One of the better movies I have seen in some time, Hello My Name is Frank is laugh-out-loud funny, incredibly dramatic, and a joy to watch. It is filled with incredibly stellar acting performances throughout. The story is sophisticated and quite unique for Hollywood. This movie will entertain you, make you think, and make you laugh and cry.

In particular, Garrett M. Brown's performance in the lead role is a treasure. It alone is worth far more than the cost of viewing this movie. Brown fully commits to his role as a sufferer of Tourette's Syndrome who has recently lost his full-time caregiver. The adventures, character growth, and drama that unfolds when Brown's character embarks upon a road trip with his caregiver's daughter and her friends is mesmerizing. Reminiscent of Little Miss Sunshine but far more dramatic, Hello My Name is Frank is a MUST watch!
