Robot & Frank
Frank is an aging ex-jewel thief, and his two grown children are worried that he can no longer care for himself. In deciding what to do with Frank, the most likely option appears to be putting him in a nursing home. But Frank's son comes up with another option: buy Frank a walking, talking robot programmed to look after him and improve his physical and mental health. Frank resists the robot at first, but he warms to it after realizing that it could be the perfect heist companion.

An interesting take on a buddy film. Definitely tries to pull heartstrings as a family drama as well. Some humor. Well written and acted. Gets points for originality. Sarsgaard does a great job with the voice of the robot.

Not a bad movie, nor a great movie either. (I thought it felt a bit like a Disney film with a few obscenities thrown in here and there.) The theme of growing old and losing your memory has been done before, and just as well or better. We'll probably see more and more movies like this until they all start to blend together...as we get older and can no longer keep them straight.
