The premise is roll-your-eyes dopey. In the near future, an older man is given a robot by his son to do chores around the house. The man and robot become allies in a scheme to rob jewelry from rich people.
Sounds like bad Disney, but trailers for 'Robot & Frank' have been utterly charming, disarming, and genuine.
Here's a new clip that plays so smoothly, is so polished, and has such a subtle rendition of character, you'd think the movie was in the Oscar race. I don't think I've seen better from Frank Langella.
Touching and funny, and yes, there is a strong what-will-happen-next feel. Can't wait to see and buy this one on Blu-ray.
Here's the trailer with commentary by director Jake Schreier.
