Robot and Frank

One of the big hits from last year's Sundance Film Festival, Robot & Frank offers a sci-fi twist on the crime caper as a retired burglar gets an unlikely new partner.

Much-loved actor Frank Langella plays Frank, an irritable retiree, and ex-jewel thief, whose wife and children have long since gone. Since he is alone and barely able to manage, his absent children (James Marsden and Liv Tyler) decide to buy him a robot - one that walks, talks, cooks and tries to civilise its cantankerous master. Immediately suspicious of his new companion, Frank's sulky protestations soon turn conspiratorial when he realises that the robot's skills can be useful for more than just the housework.

Frank's crush on the local librarian (Susan Sarandon) turns protective when a wealthy local developer threatens to acquire their beloved library. The old cat-burglar and his shiny new companion (superbly voiced by Peter Skarsgaard) hatch a cunning revenge plan.

Set in bucolic upstate New York, in a ‘near future' that bears a remarkable resemblance to ‘now' (with a few glossy technological improvements), Jake Schreier's wholly inventive riff on odd-couple comedy is also a poignant mediation on ageing and loneliness, beautifully played by a sparkling cast.
