Updated November 6, 2017 171 votes 53 voters 24.6k views8 items

"Frank" movie quotes tell the story of one aspiring band who is fronted by a man who never removes his papier-mâché head. The comedy-drama film was written by Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan and directed by Lenny Abrahamson. After premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, "Frank" opened in theaters on May 9, 2014, in the United Kingdom and on August 15, 2014, in the United States.

In "Frank," the title character (Michael Fassbender) is the singer and frontman for an eccentric band. He enlists a new bandmate Jon (Domhnall Gleeson) and takes the band to Ireland to record an album. While Jon doesn't have a lot of musical skills, he is good with the Internet and his video entices the attention of South by Southwest organizers who invite the band to perform at their festival.

While Jon is starting to get his hopes up about the band hitting it big, Frank's abrasive friend Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal) isn't keen on Jon giving Frank false hope. This all amounts to perhaps a little bit for Jon to handle, especially as Frank wears a papier-mâché head always, never ever taking it off for any reason.

"Frank" hits theaters already roaring with other hits such as "The Expendables 3," "Let's Be Cops," "Life After Beth," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "The Hundred-Foot Journey "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Get On Up," "Hercules," "Lucy," "Magic in the Moonlight," "A Most Wanted Man," "Happy Christmas," "Planes: Fire & Rescue," "Sex Tape," "Wish I Was Here, "And So It Goes, and "Dawn of Planet of the Apes."

    Frank: "Yeah"
    Clara: "People will love it!"

    Frank thinks he has his best song ever but really is spouting off about some strange Coca-Cola jingle. Clara only encourages him.
