CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on December 3rd, 2020, reviewing the new film “Uncle Frank,” now streaming on Amazon Prime.

Paul Bettany is Uncle Frank Bledsoe, a college professor in 1973 New York City. He’s escaped his past in small town South Carolina, but still carries a torch for his teen niece Beth (Sophia Lillis) and convinces her to go to college in NYC. When she gets there she finds out that Frank has been living with his gay lover Wally (Peter Macdissi) for ten years. A death in the family that brings this all to the forefront and leads to redemption. The stellar cast includes Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, Stephen Root and Margo Martindale.
