Oh man this movie... Really really charming, great performances and some really empathetic scenes.
Brilliant. Frank Langella delivers again. Plenty of recognizable people in the movie, Jeremy Sisto was underused though.
Robot & Frank is set in the near future - and a very believably imagined future at that - where a former cat burglar now suffering from memory loss and dementia (the always awesome Frank Langella) is saddled with a caretaker robot (voiced by Peter Sarsgaard) by his son whose trying to do the right thing. Frank hates the idea, but makes it work by teaching the 'bot his old stock and trade as a "hobby". The DVD cover makes it look a bit syrupy, but it really isn't, getting, I think, the balance of comedy, drama and sentiment just right. James Marsden, Jeremy Sisto, Liv Tyler and Susan Sarandon co-star, not a bad note uttered between them. An odd little film worth discovering.
