More about the film:
THE TRUTH IN BEING RIGHT
It’s 1975; Frankie Right is the biggest rock star on the face of the planet – bigger than Zeppelin bigger than the Stones. He’s managed by his older brother Mel and his younger brother Jake. These are three brothers from the back woods of Louisiana, raised from nothing. Now that Frankie has paved the way for them, they’ve grown accustomed to their wealthy lives and refuse to return to having nothing. There’s one problem though, their cash cow brother, Frankie just died from a heroin overdose.Mel the quick thinking older brother knows that without Frankie they’re nothing, so he devises a plan to find a look-a-like to replace Frankie and keep the cash flow steady. The replacement is Jimmy Foreman, a Frankie Right look-a-like contest winner who accepts the offer as his “big break”.
With Jimmy in Frankie’s place, he quickly realizes that he can never be famous on his own terms. Jimmy loses his cool and begins to destroy the Frankie Right Legacy. The brothers don’t take kindly to this and seek another replacement. How many replacements will it take before they find the right one? That’s the question we’re left with in The Truth in Being Right.
Clayne Crawford plays Carl Weintraub in the film
