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.

“Uncle Frank” is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Featuring Paul Bettany, Peter Macdissi, Sophia Lillis, Steve Zahn, Judy Greer, Stephen Root and Margo Martindale. Written and directed by Alan Ball. Rated “R”

For most of his cinematic character development, Loki has been a foil to Thor’s massive himbo (n.: a very attractive, often beefy male who isn’t the brightest bulb, but is still able to shine because of his good-natured attitude and respect for women. Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
