FRANK THE BASTARD centers around Clair Defina (Miner), a 33year-old New Yorker who returns to the childhood home she and her father fled after her mother’s tragic and mysterious death. Arriving in the seemingly quaint Maine town, Clair encounters an undercurrent of secrecy and hostility, most of it linked to the local bigwig Cyrus Gast (Sadler), whose latest land development scheme promises to revitalize the community but is not what it appears to be. Most of the town is intimidated by Cyrus, and when Clair starts delving into events, both present and past, she finds herself in jeopardy. As she comes face to face with a dark legacy that has been buried–literally and figuratively–for decades, she also has a series of strange encounters with the enigmatic Frank Byron, (Comeau) Cyrus’ bastard son. In Frank, Clair ultimately finds her only ally in a battle to redeem the crimes of the past.
FRANK THE BASTARD is a haunting tale of long-buried secrets uncovered in a remote New England town.
FRANK THE BASTARD is written and directed by Brad Coley and produced by Ged Dickersin, the film stars Rachel Miner (Supernatural, PENNY DREADFUL), William Sadler (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION), Wendy Vanden Heuvel, Andy Comeau, Ellen Albertini Dow, and Chris Sarandon (THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, THE PRINCESS BRIDE).
FRANK THE BASTARD opens in New York, Los Angeles and digitally on July 24th, with expansion into several additional major markets beginning the following week.
