Being Frank

Documentary about maverick Manchester comedian Frank Sidebottom, remembered fondly as the man with the papier-mâché head.

Frank was the court jester of the Manchester music and comedy scene for over 25 years, but only a privileged few knew the man inside. Being Frank tells a tale of a suburban superhero with a fanatical desire to preserve the myth he created and eventually having to battle against being consumed by his alter ego.
