Gay guys drive X country w niece, insult people on the way

The story is about an average looking small town girl who goes to NYU. She drives cross country with her uncle and his gay lover. She has one of those really unlikelable , Hilleryclintonesque faces , .Her uncle outs what she thinks is her boyfriend , then calls him an A hole. He seems hypocritical because he shows up to family functions with a lady beard himself. but the girl apparently can do no wrong. On their drive a mechanic thinks the girl is cute, and kids about seeing her again. When he wonders if the guys are OK with his kidding , she says "you don't need these guys permission to play with me, you need mine. If you don't know that you're even stupider then you look , and thats pretty GD stupid " or , something close to that. ..... The guy didn't ask if he could play with her, he asked if it was OK if he made a joke about the fact that he would like to see her again. If she didn't glean that from the exchange, she's pretty GD biotchy. That she could turn a compliment into a reason to insult and belittle a working man, when she is a lit major which is as useful as mammaries on a bull, is a part of post woke hysteria. Immediately she put him into the basket of deplorable category, obviously thinking she was too good for him because he worked with his hands. Without him, the car wouldn't get fixed. Without him and guys like him, the lights wouldn't stay on when she read her "ginchie little poetry" on her way to a journalism career for public radio. . Little Miss Thang was the only A hole , her and her uncle , I saw around there. Crappy misandry filled junk. No spoilers, I couldn't get past her irritating attitude so didn't finish it..

A Good Film with Important Messages

So this weekend the London Sundance Film Festival is happening online and I am going to watch three of the films online over the next few days and the first one which I have just finished watching is called Uncle Frank and here is my review for it. The premise of the film is in the 1970's where a man and his 18 year old niece have to travel home where they are joined by the mans secret gay lover. Main Character Paul Bettany of Vision fame in The Marvel Cinematic Universe plays Uncle Frank here and I thought he was superb here. He gives a truly memorable performance and it is really emotional, the film focuses on how living this secret life has affected him and how even though he is intelligent it doesn't change the fact that he is scared about living his life. He is very charismatic and charming and just leads the screen very well here. Supporting Characters Sophia Lillis is in this film as his niece and this girl is having a great 2020 in terms of her star growing. I loved watching her on I am Not Okay With This and she is great here as well. She does kind of feel like a background character towards the end of the film but she does a great job in her role and I thought her and Bettany had really good chemistry here. Peter Macdissi plays his gay lover here and I thought he was a fun addition here, he is very different to everybody else here, he is more vibrant and over the top but I just liked him here and thought he was a very fun part of the film. The rest of the supporting cast also do a really good job in there smaller roles and add something to the film. Story The story deals with many important subjects and themes, it is a film about acceptance and understanding people which is well done. It deals with the characters and there personalities well making the impactful moments hit in a larger way then I expected. Though this film also does fall for some forced emotional story elements, there is one in particular that felt wasted and didn't quite work and felt a little bit forced and like it had an agenda. Script The script here has some good dialogue, it has the drama and emotion and actually some pretty funny moments which helped the flow of the film. But as I mentioned there are some forced moments that pretty much comes by weaker writing, that distrupts the flow of the film at times. Style The style of the film does a good job of making the audience feel the way that you are supposed to. You will be upset when you are supposed to, happy when you are supposed to and laugh when you are supposed to. But this film does have some pacing issues, especially when the road trip aspects of the film take place and this film clocks in at 90 minutes which made it feel a little short for me as I thought there as maybe a bit more story to tell. Overall Overall, I liked this movie. It tells some important messages and with good acting makes it worthy, I would say this is a film for film fans I think most casuals won't be a fan but if you are interested in good stories in film then this might be worth a watch.

Let's be Frank.

This is a film of love, partners, family and mostly self. A beautifully shot, thoughtful take on the challenges of traditional 70's thinking and the challenges of a gay life within a family. A superbly acted film, tense and moving, warmed with love. It's not an easy watch, and shouldn't be. In saying that it has fun and warmth. Recommended.
