robot-and-frank

Robot and Frank was one of the most entertaining films I’ve seen lately. It’s about a man named Frank who has a condition similar to Alzheimer’s (although not specifically stated as that in the film) and is given a robot butler to help him stay active and do chores around the house. Frank, a former serial cat burglar, does not want the robot around at first but soon finds that he can do one last major job with this robot if he can just convince it that it’s going to be safe. And thus the two plan a heist that inadvertently keeps Frank’s mind occupied and sharp. It’s funny and moving in a way that makes you root for the bad guys. I highly recommend this film!
