Robot & Frank

Year: 2012

PlotFrank Langella, a retired burglar, has Alzheimer’s, although the A-word is never actually uttered. His concerned and somewhat estranged family gets him a caretaker robot to keep him on an even keel. The twosome soon starts to plan a heist.

Pros: Despite the fact that aging and memory loss are not cheerful topics, the flick has moments of sheer hilarity. Frank Langella is excellent, and so is his robot counterpart.

Cons: It is a downer, as you’d expect from the geriatric drama genre.
