Robot & Frank is one of the March movies that I am really looking forward to as Frank Langella returns to the big screen.
Langella has always been a terrific actor and he is set to turn in another very moving performance in the Jake Schreier directed movie.
And if you cannot wait until next week to see the film we have some clips for you to check out:
The movie marks the directorial debut of Jake Schreier while Christopher Ford has been on hand to pen the script.
Langella is joined on the cast list by Susan Sarandon and Liv Tyler while Peter Sarsgaard has lent his voice to the robot.
Robot & Frank is a buddy caper. Set in the near future, aging curmudgeon and retired jewel thief Frank (Frank Langella) lives a solitary life until his son (James Marsden) installs a caretaker robot; against he and his daughter’s (Liv Tyler) wishes.
The robot upends Frank’s lonely life – filled only with books and a visit to his favourite librarian (Susan Sarandon) – with a strict regimen of exercise, diet and gardening.
Stubborn at first, Frank soon realises Robot has the ability to pull off the most calculated of heists. An unlikely friendship, and crime duo, is born
Robot & Frank has been lighting up the festival circuit since it made it’s debut at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012 and it is not set to light up the big screen as it goes on general release.
Robot & Frank is released 8th March.
