Paul Bettany Is the Perfect <i>Uncle Frank</i>

by Kit Bowen 17 October, 2020

Set in 1973, Uncle Frank follows teenaged Beth Bledsoe (Sophia Lillis) who 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.
