Indeed, even though Ian McKellen is above all famous for his roles in the X-men and Lord of the rings franchises, he is actually much more than that and these movies only focus on his amazing charisma but don’t really display the depth of his acting range. This movie is a fine example. Indeed, ... read more

One of the most brilliant, shocking films I have ever seen. What an experience seeing all the film's content, as well as the crazily convincing performance by Sir Ian McKellen.

Description: Based on Christopher Bram's novel FATHER OF FRANKENSTEIN, Bill Condon's semi-fictional 1998 sleeper stars Sir Ian McKellen in a fantastic performance as director James Whale (FRANKENSTEIN, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, SHOW BOAT). It is 1957, and Whale is living in semiseclusion in Southern California with his scrutinizing maid, Hannah (Lynn Redgrave). His health is failing, and he is able to do little but lounge around and contemplate his younger days--his many male loves, his days in WWI, and the film world that has forsaken him.

" Date: 3/17/2019 Viewed: Tubi Re-Watch Note: I always love this movie because of the great performances of both Ian McKellan and Brendan Fraser. It's a very interesting story of James Whale before he died in 1957 and him dealing with a troubled past. Even if the movie is not 100% true to real life, it's still a great movie nevertheless. I highly recommend this movie."
