Leon Schuster is at it again
FUNNYMAN Leon Schuster is at it again in his latest epic comedy film Frank & Fearless.
The movie tells the story of an ageing troublemaker, a rural African boy, a large dog and an orphaned baby rhino set on stopping the slaughter of rhinos.
Tragedy brings together the young African boy named Fearless, his faithful companion dog at his side, the lovable but ageing troublemaker Sonny Frank, who has a penchant for telling tall tales, and a very cute orphaned baby rhino, Reini.
Their quest takes them through hysterically funny situations as well as times of tragedy, and they end up as an inspiration and a conscience to a world in need of heroes.
The killing of Reini’s mother by poachers sets these four on an ill-advised journey through the wild African bush to an equally wild African city.
The action returns to the bush, where the four have no choice but to take on a platoon of merciless poachers, who are led by a terrifying ranger turned poacher.
The climax is a combination of Home Alone shenanigans inter-cut with very frightening reality.
Frank & Fearless is a family film in the side-splitting Schuster comedy tradition, combined with a timeless story and huge heart.
The motion picture is created by a dynamic team of experts, with acclaimed film maker Gray Hofmeyr (Jock of the Bushveld, Sweet and Short, There’s a Zulu On My Stoep) as director and André Scholtz and Menzi Thabede as producers.
