Isabelle Huppert is quite possibly France's greatest living actor, and she takes centre stage in our Cineworld Unlimited screening of Frankie on the 23rd of May. This will be our first Unlimited screening in the wake of our Cineworld re-opening on May 19th, and we're inviting you to spend it in the company of one of cinema's greatest performers.
The mercurial Huppert (star of Paul Verhoeven's controversial Elle) plays the eponymous Frankie, a troubled actress who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Realizing that she has only a few months left to live, Frankie must reconnect with her estranged family. The stage is set for a drama of recrimination and redemption in the beautiful Portuguese town of Sintra.
The film is directed by Ira Sachs who has previously elicited fine performances from actors including John Lithgow and Alfred Molina (Love is Strange), and Greg Kinnear (Little Men). The script, co-written by Sachs, plays to Huppert's strengths: she plays a somewhat unreadable, aloof character who steadily approaches a life-changing moment of realization. The excellent supporting cast includes Kinnear, Brendan Gleeson (28 Days Later) and Marisa Tomei (Spider-Man: Far From Home).
