Robot and Frank

by admin on August 7, 2012


Directed by Jake Schreier
Written by Christopher D. Ford
Starring Frank Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Susan Sarandon, Peter Sarsgaard

Set in the near future, Frank, a retired cat burglar, has two grown kids who are concerned he can no longer live alone. They are tempted to place him in a nursing home until Frank’s son chooses a different option: against the old man’s wishes, he buys Frank a walking, talking humanoid robot programmed to improve his physical and mental health. What follows is an often hilarious and somewhat heartbreaking story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places.

Screening at Cinema Society in August
