How will we react when the automata take over? This is the fascinating premise of first-time director Schreier’s. Crotchety retiree Frank’s son kids insists that he have a robot to help him at home. However has a guilty secret and finds a much more creative use for his metallic new friend. When his local library is digitally downgraded, Frank and his robot pal use their illicit skills to help Frank’s only real friend, the world-weary librarian, to keep her job. A gem of a movie that never quite goes where you expect, ROBOT & FRANK delights in every respect.
Schreier’s first feature is extremely charming on it’s on own terms, taking the buddy-buddy template into unusual territory and doing so with wry wit and a host of rather lovely performances - Trevor Johnson, SIGHT & SOUND
Starring: Frank Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Susan Sarandon
