Frankie

European idyll appears comfortable in first gear

Award-winning, non-Hollywood filmmaker Ira Sachs returns to theaters with all the trademark elements necessary for an art house drama in tow. His latest indie, Frankie, boasts a star-studded cast, an exotic locale, 90 minutes worth of dysfunctional family drama and a tone so low-key it couldn’t possibly overexcite its target audience of retirement age moviegoers.
