Frank official film trailer - in cinemas from 9 May (by Frank)

Frank is inspired by the story of celebrated musician Chris Sievey, aka Frank Sidebottom, who became notorious for always wearing a giant papier–mache head whenever he played live. The film draws on the experiences of journalist Jon Ronson, who briefly played keyboards for Sidebottom in the late 80s. Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, and starring Michael Fassbender, Domnhall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Frank is released in the UK on 9 May 2014 (source: The Guardian)

"I’ve heard that everybody you know if more revelant than everybody I know… I’m Losing My Edge but I was there."
