Fixing Frank

This engaging 2001 video concerns a writer who has covered mostly “tulip festivals and antique shows,” but to please his “superfag” activist lover tries an undercover exposé of a therapist who claims to convert gays to heterosexuality. Complications ensue as the therapist proves less evil than expected and the writer starts opening up to him about his problems. But is the therapist as much a manipulator as the lover? Andrew Elvis Mitchell's portrayal of this insecure writer torn between two strong men is especially supple, and Michael Selditch's direction is tight and competent. But Ken Hanes's witty script shows its origins in his stage play, with the repartee often a bit too thick and fast for the screen. 103 min.
