Have you heard of Frank, the new comedy starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Domhall Gleeson and Michael Fassbender? Fassy wears a giant paper-mache head the entire film (a la Frank Longbottom), and it's creating a decent amount of buzz. It debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and it will come out early this summer.
Gleeson plays Jon, a young man who is asked to join the band the Soronprfbs, an eccentric group headed by Fassy's Frank. They record an album in Ireland, and, after posting some videos online, they are asked to play at the South by Southwest festival.
It looks kooky and funny. Bring on as much Domhall Gleeson as possible. I will see him in anything and toke on his adorableness. Put him more things, please. What I'm super excited about is seeing Michael Fassbender do comedy. After Shame, Inglorious Basterds, and (especially) 12 Years a Slave, it will be a treat to see him do something so light.
Also, bring on Fassy in various tank tops. No one should be allowed to wear tank tops excepts Michael Fassbender. This shall be my first decree.
Maggie Gyllenhaal is serving some Harriet Harris realness. I dig it.
