About the Movie

Michael Fassbender stars as Frank, a genius rock musician who performs wearing a giant fake head that he never removes. Things get rocky between his protective bandmate Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and newcomer Jon (Domhnall Gleeson), who is convinced they’re meant for stardom. The band lands their biggest gig, but are they ready? And is the world?

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: With the soulful Gleeson and a sweetly menacing Fassbender (under a giant helmet-head) at its center, the movie never loses its acerbic edge or its oversize heart. – Kyle Anderson, Entertainment Weekly, Jan 6, 2015

Fresh: Odd, offbeat, somehow endearing, the bleakly comic "Frank" has its own kind of charm as well as some pointed, poignant things to say about the mysterious nature of creativity, where it comes from and where it might all go. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Aug 21, 2014

Fresh: The whole thing is in danger of becoming arch and quirky, yet Abrahamson steers the final act of his drama toward a sombre, unhappy rumination. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Sep 5, 2014

Fresh: A functioning, funny, weirdly touching fable of artistic angst and aspiration, a meditation on fame and its terrors and the metaphoric usefulness of masks and huge fake heads. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Aug 28, 2014

Quirky comedy done right

Michael Fassbender is so amazing and I loved Maggie Gyllenhaal's cutting humor.

Pretty Funny

I found it pretty amusing most of the way through. I felt the the movie lost me toward the end but the movie’s closing moments were quite good. I feel that I will have to chew on this movie awhile before watching it again. Michael Fassbender is amazing.

Great movie can't wait to be able to purchase it

Quirky, intelligent and fast paced. Loved it!
