Robot & Frank
PG, 89 minutes
Susan Sarandon; Frank Langella; Liv Tyler; Peter Sarsgaard; Robot
That veteran charmer Frank Langella is at it again. This delightful comedy, set in the “near future,” features a retired jewel thief whose exasperated son (James Marsden) shows up with a talking robot to help provide care for dad, who’s having memory problems. Irascible, long-divorced Frank wants nothing to do with cheery but demanding Robot (voiced by Peter Sarsgaard) — at least until he realizes his new companion isn’t programmed to obey the law, and has an electronic brain that gives him real potential as a safecracker.
