Amazon Studios is releasing UNCLE FRANK on Prime Video on November 25th. Written and directed by Alan Ball (American Beauty, Towelhead) and featuring a stellar cast, UNCLE FRANK is a Southern family-drama with touching and hilarious, comedic moments.
In 1973, teenaged Beth Bledsoe (Sophia Lillis) leaves her rural Southern hometown to study at New York University where her beloved Uncle Frank (Paul Bettany) is a revered literature professor. She soon discovers that Frank is gay, and living with his longtime partner Walid “Wally” Nadeem (Peter Macdissi) — an arrangement that he has kept secret for years. After the sudden death of Frank’s father — Beth’s grandfather — Frank is forced to reluctantly return home for the funeral with Beth in tow, and to finally face a long-buried trauma that he has spent his entire adult life running away from.
