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.
The film stars Rachel Miner (Supernatural, PENNY DREADFUL), William Sadler (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION), and Chris Sarandon (THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, THE PRINCESS BRIDE). Opens in theaters and digitally on Friday, July 24th.
