Description

80-year-old eccentric Frank is pretty much retired and has turned his attentions to playing the accordion. However, the focus of this revealing film is his celebrity, which derives from a deeply felt friendship with Pudgie Wudgie, his 20-pound performing house cat.  The soon-to-be-famous feline’s distinguishing trait is its Buddha-like patience with the costumes that Frank imposes on him.  Frank and Pudgie start out humbly but soon their growing fame takes them from elementary-school assemblies to the dizzying heights of national television.  Strange, oddly beautiful and hilarious. -Chris Metzler
