What do you get when you cross an aging grumpy man with a caregiving robot? You get Robot & Frank, an adorable movie that came out of this year’s Sundance. I reviewed this film from the festival and I still believe it’s a must-see.
Robot & Frank stars Frank Langella as an aging con man whose children (played by James Marsden and Liv Tyler) think a robot caregiver will be just the thing he needs to help him out around the house. Little do his kids know that Frank befriends Robot and the two start planning one last heist for Frank, which involves breaking into and stealing from a neighbor’s house. Susan Sarandon also stars.
And now? The first official trailer for the film has arrived.
