Ginger-haired Jon joins the Soronprfbs, an eccentric pop band led by the even more eccentric Frank, who never takes off an oversized plastic head with baby-boy blue eyes with a direct stare. As he spends more time with the band and they toy with album-writing and history-making, it becomes clear that Frank might be just too much for Jon to face. As funny and enigmatic as it is insightful, Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank is a look at comradery, artistry, and mental illness in a way that will make you laugh and cry in wonder. The story is loosely based on an actual guy who actually wore a giant head while touring with the Oh Blimey Big Band in the late 1980s, but the relationships between artists and auteurs explored in the film remain relevant to this day. As Peter Travers of Rolling Stone put it, “You’re in for something funny, touching, and vital.”
