ANGELIKA’S NOTE

An aging, cantankerous ex-cat burglar (Oscar nominee Frank Langella, FROST/NIXON, THE BOX) finds his zest for life renewed when he trains his robotic caretaker to help him commit heists. In his first feature, director Jake Schreier (PAPER TOWNS, LODGE 49) delivers both a quirky drama and a meditation on aging in ROBOT & FRANK. Bolstered by Langella's masterful lead performance, this Sundance Film Festival Award winner also stars James Marsden, Liv Tyler and Oscar winner Susan Sarandon. "Charming, playful and sly, it makes us believe that a serene automaton and a snappish human being can be best friends forever" (Los Angeles Times).
