Set in 1973, writer/director Alan Ball’s personal film Uncle Frank follows Frank Bledsoe (Paul Bettany) and his 18-year-old niece, Beth (Sophia Lillis), as they travel from New York to their hometown in South Carolina for the family’s patriarch’s funeral. But when Frank’s lover Walid (Peter Macdissi) unexpectedly shows up, Frank must deal with his past and show his Southern family who he really is.
