I Am Cinematic: Cafe Gratitude-Centric Documentary Might Be Preachy, But Inspirational

Frank Ferrante, a 54-year-old Brooklyn transplant, looks like the last person who would wander into a Cafe Gratitude and stay there without the use of handcuffs, but the documentary May I Be Frank shows how the perceptively preachy vegan mini-chain helped him achieve a healthier body and outlook on life in just over a month. While our suspicions are as-ever aroused by the whole Gratitude ethos, the film looks like a fish-out-of-water story worth seeing. Proceeds from both screenings will benefit San Rafael-based nonprofit Beyond Hunger.
