Charm and whimsy infuse this story of an ageing man who forms a friendship with his robot housekeeper. You've seen unusual buddy movies on-screen before - but never quite like this! Set in the near future, this gentle film focuses on an ex-jewel thief named Frank (Frank Langella) - a crotchety old codger who nevertheless has a twinkle in his eye for local librarian Jennifer (Susan Sarandon). Frank's grown-up kids are concerned that he can no longer look after himself - so they buy him a walking, talking robot to help out with the household chores. The old man initially detests the idea - but eventually becomes attached to his new companion. However, the lure of his criminal past soon becomes too much, and Frank enlists his robotic pal to assist with a daring robbery! A heart-warming story filtered through the perspective of a bizarre friendship, Robot and Frank is a superb showcase for the talents of screen veteran Langella.
