    Good film. Well acted and humorous, a look at aging, friendships, and the endurance of family. Enjoyably entertaining

    Its a nice, endearing film, but nothing more.

    Smart and entertaining. Real fun with a lightness that gives this indie its appeal. The kind of film i'd recommend and wouldn't mined seeing again with a friend or two.

    Even Frank Langella at his most acerbic can't rescue this twee and rather pointless parable about loneliness. I bailed after half-an-hour, but you may be made of mushier stuff.

    Frank Langella does an excellent job as the character Frank. An older person not familiar with new technology and trying to adjust to his family's concern about his well being. Really enjoyed the movie.

    Cute, simple, funny movie. I was expecting a better end, but I don't want to punish the whole work for it. At least not on this instance.

    An indie sci-fi recalls the classic relations in portraying futuristic reality with subliminal themes that Frank Langella nicely demonstrates in the film's genuine meditation towards aging from past reminiscent to loneliness then possession at an understanding matter, while also accompanied by a nice cast and backed-up by good chemistry and humor. (B+) (Full review TBD)

    Brilliant writing. Great story. Excellent cast. Didnâ(TM)t see that coming.

    A comedy drama about an OAP befriending a robot could have been a disaster. However this near future odd couple works. It's an old-fashioned meditation on dementia, which is funny and never soppy.
