ABOUT THE FILM

Let Me Be Frank is sometimes funny, often poignant and not so politically correct.
This is the story of Frank's journey out of religious certainty and, in the face of the historic rise of political and Christian conservatism, the discovery of surprising instances of tenderness, hope and grace along the way.

Frank, the son of influential Evangelicals Francis and Edith Schaeffer, was a filmmaker, writer, speaker and an architect of the religious right in the 1970s. Underneath the exterior of aggressive religiosity, and expected to follow in his famous family's footsteps, his life was in turmoil.

To the surprise of the religious establishment, Frank didn’t step up. He stepped away.

Described as the "Traitorous Prince" by former confidants on the religious and political right, Frank is now a best-selling author, blogger, painter, speaker and regular commentator for news outlets like MSNBC.

His books include, Portofino, Crazy for God, Keeping Faith: A Father-Son Story About Love and the U.S. Marine Corps (with son John Schaeffer) and Why I'm an Atheist who Believes in God.
