Movie Review – Dear Frankie

Dear Frankie I watched a movie over the weekend that I have been wanting to watch for a long time. Dear Frankie. It was a wonderful little film. I could listen to a Scottish accent forever. Every person cast was so perfect it was as if you were truly watching Lizzie, Frankie, and the Stranger as real people. I thought the director, Shona Auerbach, did a super job. The Mirimax blurb says: "Dear Frankie is a heartwarming and often humorous tale of nine year old Frankie and his mom, Lizzie, who have been on the move ever since he can remember. To protect her son from the truth, Lizzie has invented a story to satisfy Frankie's curiosity. She regularly writes Frankie a letter from his make-believe father who works aboard a ship traveling exotic lands. However, Lizzie soon finds out his 'father's' ship will be arriving in a few days. Now, Lizzie must choose between telling Frankie the truth and hatching a desperate plan to find the perfect stranger to play the perfect father."
