Robot and Frank (2012) – Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon in Sci-Fi Crime Comedy of Generation Gap

A funny & touching film that is very effective at getting the audience to identify and empathize with Frank Langella’s aging character, a former cat burglar who is gradually growing senile. Frank’s son buys him a robot caretaker –a health-nut disciplinarian with a soft spot in its hardware heart — and Frank eventually persuades the robot to be his partner-in-crime in some late-life capers he has planned.

Set in the near future, an ex-jewel thief receives a gift from his daughter: a robot butler programmed to look after him. But soon the two companions try their luck as a heist team.
