Robot & Frank - Movie Synopsis & Plot

"Robot & Frank," the feature film debut of commercial director Jake Schreier, was a festival favorite at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival where it world premiered and was co-winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize.

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.

MOVIE REVIEW

Ah, the classic story of an old man and his friend robot. A tried and true tale that has been told through the centuries. And even yet, Robot & Frank is a surprisingly endearing drama-comedy about two unlikely friends, starring Frank Langella and the voice of Peter Sarsgaard.
