WATCH The Trailer for Alan Ball’s Gay Comedy-Drama “Uncle Frank” [VIDEO]

Set in the 1970s, Uncle Frank is a road movie about a gay man who confronts his past.

Written and directed by the Six Feet Under and True Blood creator, the film, set in 1973, follows teenager Beth Bledsoe (Sophia Lillis) as she departs her rural Southern town to study at New York University, where her Uncle Frank (Paul Bettany) teaches literature.

Beth soon learns that Frank is gay and living with his partner Walid “Wally” Nadeem (Peter Macdissi). Afterward, a death in the family forces the trio to take a road trip back home and confront past trauma.

Uncle Frank also stars Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, Lois Smith, with Margo Martindale and Stephen Root. It premieres November 25 on Amazon Prime.
