"Laurentine and I are huge fans of Frank! We saw this film for the first time at a community screening in Santa Monica and absolutely loved it, there was not a dry eye in the house! His transformation is inspiring and nothing short of incredible. A highly recommended inspirational film!"
- James Colquhoun - Filmmaker 'Food Matters' & 'Hungry For Change'

About the film:

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. He unknowingly stumbles into a local restaurant in San Francisco, Café Gratitude, a raw, organic and vegan café. As he becomes friends with the staff, he keeps returning to the café where he feels welcomed and free from his collapsing personal life. On one such visit, Frank is asked by Ryland, one of the servers, 'What is one thing you want to do before you die?', Frank replies 'I want to fall in love one more time, but no one will love me looking the way I do.'

Inspired by the possibility of helping Frank, Ryland invites him to come into the café everyday for the next month. Armed with a camera and a wide open heart, Ryland soon enrolls his brother Cary, and Conor, his best friend, to participate in supporting Frank's transformation. The final agreement is made that for the next 42 days, Frank will turn his life over to three twenty-something young men committed to his healing and prepared to coach him physically, emotionally and spiritually. Frank will eat only raw food, practice gratitude, visit local holistic practitioners, and get a weekly colonic. Ryland, Conor, and Cary get to support and witness Frank's miraculous transformation. Frank gets a new body, a clearer mind, and most importantly, a soaring spirit.

Over those 42 days, the four men go on the ride of their lives. Setting out to help Frank lose weight and get healthy, no one anticipated the profound impact this journey would have on the lives of countless others. Through Frank's story of love, redemption, and transformation, the viewers witness the power of change for themselves and the world. May I Be Frank documents the essence of the human condition and what it truly means to fall in love again.

"I was deeply moved by Frank's transformation. Frank and the boys demonstrate what community can look like if we take a stand for a purpose larger then ourselves. Seeing this film is an invitation for your heart to open."
- Woody Harrelson
"This film is a triumph...where the hero defeats the villain within himself AND gets the girl in the end. I've followed Frank on his transformational journey a few times now, and each time I do, I awaken to something new and true about my own life's purpose. This film is an amazing gift for those looking to cultivate their soul resources." - Jason Mraz, musician
"Who says you can't change your life for the better? Who says you have to remain stuck in patterns that don't serve you? May I Be Frank is a story of redemption. It's exciting and inspiring. Don't miss it!" - John Robbins, author of The New Good Life, The Food Revolution, and Diet For A New America.

Frank shows that pulling your self up is very difficult to do. But if you can hang in there long enough you can do it know matter how many times it takes. There is no failure as long as you do not Quit. al
