Dear Frankie

Drama, Romance 1h 45m 2004

AroView: An effectively written drama about the consequences of a mother’s desire to protect her deaf son from the truth about his violent, absent father.

In a series of letters to the lad she impersonates his father, and is compelled to pay a man to carry on the deception. Benefits from Emily Mortimer’s sympathetic manner, though some may find to situation too lightly drawn.

“The movie is filled with small moments of tenderness, insight and considerable wisdom.” ~Ray Bennett, The Hollywood Reporter
