Unfolding over the course of a late summer's day in the fabled resort town of Sintra, Portugal — known for its dense gardens and gorgeous villas and palaces — “Frankie” follows the family members who have gathered for a vacation organized by the matriarch (Isabelle Huppert). In this fairy-tale setting, husbands and wives, parents and children, friends and lovers — stirred by their romantic impulses — discover both the cracks between them and an unexpected depth of feeling. The film’s stellar supporting cast includes Brendan Gleeson, Marisa Tomei, and Greg Kinnear. Declaring the film “a shrewd, unhurried portrait of family and friendship,” RogerEbert.com writes: “What a thorough pleasure to be in the company of ‘Frankie,’ a film that feels like a sumptuous beach read on a lazy sunny afternoon.”
