Set in the near future, Frank, a retired cat burglar, has two grown kids who are concerned he can no longer live alone. They are tempted to place him in a nursing home until Frank’s son chooses a different option: against the old man’s wishes, he buys Frank a walking, talking humanoid robot programmed to improve his physical and mental health. What follows is an often hilarious and heartwarming story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places. Starring an ensemble cast led by Academy Award nominee Frank Lengella (2008, Best Actor, Frost/Nixon), Academy Award Winner Susan Sarandon (1995, Best Actress, Dead Man Walking), Liv Tyler and James Marsden.
Endearing little tale of friendship and family
Loved this movie. It's a great reminder that really good sci-if is actually about examining the moral and emotional impacts of new technology not spaceships and big explosions.
Great performances and script.
I was on a plane to Sri Lanka for holiday an it was on the tv little swearing but great movie
This movie gives a perfect representation of someone who lives in the past and is in desperate need of a friend, and like most stories like this, that friend is found in the most unlikely place. And that robot is so cool :)
