Robot & Frank

Robot & Frank(2012)

Frank(Frank Langella) is a retired car burglar who is suffering from Alzheimers. he has two grown children who are unable to take care of him, so they buy a robot. The robot does his chores and becomes a friend to Frank after initial resistance. Frank then uses the Robot to help commit more burglaries, and the movie takes off from there. This movie is great. Parts are hilarious, some are heartbreaking, but the movie always feels fresh and different. It has a few parts that are slow, but the lulls never stay too long.The supporting cast is great, but Langella is amazing as Frank. The guy gets better with age. Check this out if your in the mood for a different type of independent dramady.
