The Film Arcade has released the official poster and trailer for Being Frank (formerly titled You Can Choose Your Family), which marks the directorial debut of Miranda Bailey and features a cast that includes Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show), Logan Miller (Escape Room), Anna Gunn (Deadwood), Samantha Mathis (Billions), Alex Karpovsky (Girls), and Danielle Campbell (The Originals).
Seventeen-year old Philip (Miller) longs to leave his small town for music school in The Big Apple. His dreams are dashed when his overbearing father, Frank (Gaffigan) forbids it. In retaliation to his father’s dictatorial parenting, he sneaks away in search of a wild spring break. However, when he crosses state lines, he instead finds a charming lake community where he spots his father with another woman. Turns out, Frank lives in this town and has an entire other family. With this bizarre revelation Philip realizes he can either blow the whistle on his father’s deceit or take advantage of the surreal situation.
Being Frank opens in the U.S. with a limited release from June 14th before expanding nationwide on June 21st.
