may I be Frank

Went to this movie last night, met Frank, wow! This movie is the inspirational story of a regular guy who turns out to be an incredible man. Here's a link to Cafe Gratitude in San Francisco, the setting of the documentary: and here's a link to the movie page:

The director, Gregg Marks, and Frank Ferrante himself were there to answer questions and meet people. The film documents Frank's personal journey. I'm going to quote the film's web page now,

"Frank Ferrante is a 54 year old Sicilian from Brooklyn living in San Francisco.  A lover of life, great food, beautiful women and a good laugh, Frank is also a drug addict, morbidly obese, pre-diabetic, and fighting Hepatitis C. He’s estranged from his daughter, single, and struggling with depression. Frank knows that life can be better than this, and is looking for a way out.
May I Be Frank documents the transformation of Frank Ferrante’s life."

So please check out this film. You can invite them to your town for a showing. Do it!
