FRANK AND AVA Biopic is Available on Amazon Prime Video and iTunes
July 20, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA – FRANK AND AVA the award-winning biopic of the tumultuous love affair between Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner is distributed in the United States and Canada by Gravitas Ventures and is available on Amazon Prime Video and iTunes.
Brooklyn native Rico Simonini, a well-known Los Angeles cardiologist at a leading medical center, who portrays Frank Sinatra also did the screenplay adaptation of the stage play by Willard Manus.
In 2014 Simonini originated the role of Frank Sinatra in Manus’ play which was developed in the Actor’s Studio. It was then that Simonini, who had a connection to Sinatra, knew he had to turn the play into a movie.
“Creating the film was a compelling opportunity to tell the story of Sinatra from the viewpoint of a period in his life represented by his downturn and despair that preceded the eventual comeback that catapulted him to iconic stardom.”
“It was a labor of the heart, both mine and the cast who virtually made gifts of their craft in order to create the magic on screen,” said Simonini.
It’s 1949 and Sinatra, the former king of swoon who once enchanted millions of “bobby soxers,” is at the downturn of his career, as the once golden “Voice” is now compromised by a hemorrhage to his vocal cords, while his reputation is lambasted by the press who parade his alleged Mafia connections, liberal sympathies and extramarital affairs. In the midst of his despair, he falls hard and fast for Gardner, MGM’s sultry starlet with whom he shares proclivities for passion, whiskey, obstinacy, and sexual infidelities.
Directed by Michael Oblowitz, FRANK AND AVA was shot on location in Rome, Italy; Hollywood, CA and Sinatra’s home in Palm Springs, CA. In addition to Rico Simonini as Frank Sinatra and Emily Elicia Low as Ava Gardner, the film features Eric Roberts, Lukas Haas, Richard Portnow, Domenick Lombardozzi, Neil Sandilands, Jonathan Silverman, Terry Moore and the legendary Harry Dean Stanton in his last feature film appearance.
