Broadsheet Trailer Park’s ‘Delboy’ is on holiday.


Making its premiere this week at Sundance is ‘Frank’, Lenny Abrahamson’s tale of eccentric entertainer Frank Sidebottom. Starring Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal, the film follows Jon (Gleeson) who joins a band, and heads with them to a cabin in the woods to record an album. And leading them all is the mysterious and talented Frank (Fassbender), joined by his sidekick Clara (Gyllenhaal).

Release date: May 2nd Ireland & UK

Lenny Abrahamson’s  Fassbender/Gleeson headlining ‘Frank’ will premiere at the Sundance Festival next month.

Frank is based on the memoir by Jon Ronson about a wannabe musician (Gleeson) who joins an avant-garde rock band led by the enigmatic Frank Sidebottom (Fassbender) — a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head.

Any excuse really.
