Frank is a curmudgeonly ex-jewel thief who develops a friendship with the robot programmed to look after him in the film “Robot & Frank”, showing at the Library on Friday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m.
Frank Langella stars as Frank, who lives alone and has few friends. His adult son is worried that Frank’s memory is failing and provides the robot as a solution. When Frank teaches his robot buddy the tricks of cat burglary, things quickly get out of hand.
Kenneth Turan wrote about the film in the Los Angeles Times: “Charming, playful and sly, it makes us believe that a serene automaton and a snappish human being can be best friends forever.”
“Robot & Frank” won the Alfred P. Sloan Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and the screenplay is nominated for an Independent Spirit Award. The film also stars Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler, James Marsden and Jeremy Sisto. It is rated PG-13 and runs for 1 hr. 30 min.
The movie is part of a new series of independent, foreign and documentary films to be shown the last Friday of every month at the Dover Public Library. To volunteer, or for more information please call 736-7030.
