In “The Whale”, which is a psychological drama directed by “Black Swan” movie-maker Darren Aronofsky, Fraser portrays a 600-pound gay man confined to a wheelchair.
After the latest screening, social media users took to Twitter to praise Fraser for the role, sharing clips of him reacting to the incredible response:
