A Sundance talking point this year was Michael Fassbender starring in a film in which audiences never get to see his face. The picture is a surreal comedy called Frank, the story of a musician who joins a band that’s spearheaded by a mysterious man wearing a fake head.

Director Lenny Abrahamson believes Fassbender relished the challenge of playing the role, partially inspired by late punk musician Chris Sievey‘s alter ego Frank Sidebottom: “It must be enjoyable for a guy whose face is now so recognizable, and whose face has become a kind of commodity, to act without it.”
