An offbeat comedy
Frank is an offbeat comedy about Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), a wannabe musician who finds himself out of his depth when he joins an avant-garde pop band led by the enigmatic Frank (Michael Fassbender), a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head, and his terrifying bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal).
From a lakeside cabin, where the band spend 18 months – and all of Jon's savings – recording their new album, to the stages of South by Southwest after the band becomes a viral internet sensation, FRANK tells the story of Jon's struggle with Clara for control of Frank, his rise to power within the band, and how, ultimately, he comes close to destroying the thing he's come to love.
