NOTES FROM THE FILMMAKERS
May I Be Frank is about Frank Ferrante, 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.
Watch the transformation of Frank’s life when he stumbles into a local raw and vegan restaurant, becomes friends with the staff, and strikes an agreement to turn his life over to three twenty-something young men-to-be coached physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Over 42 days, the four men go on the ride of their lives.
Through Frank’s story of love, redemption, and transformation, we witness the power of change in one person’s life and its impact on countless others.

“What makes this documentary compelling is not just the physical changes that we see in Frank Ferrante but how the organic food and new lifestyle are able to create serious breakthroughs in how he feels about himself and in his relationship with his family. . .May I Be Frank is a very moving film that speaks to the power of food, love, and gratitude. I recommend it strongly.” – Max Goldberg. Living Maxwell. May I Be Frank is a Beautiful, Beautiful Movie – Go See It! 15 March 2012
