Thursday Film Matinee - Robot and Frank
February 28, 2013
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 heartwarming story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places.
Frank Langella, James Marsden, Susan Sarandon. Sony Pictures; Directed by Jake Schreier. Rated PG-13; 89 minutes; 2012
