Here is the first UK trailer for ROBOT AND FRANK.
Frank Langella leads a very strong cast (including Susan Sarandon in glasses… Just sayin’…) in what looks like a very sweet, funny and rather moving buddy film about an elderly man and his automaton chum.
The feature debuted at the London Film Festival last year and was warmly received. You can read our review right here. For your viewing pleasure, please find the official synopsis and trailer.
‘Set in the near future, aging curmudgeon and retired jewel thief Frank (Frank Langella) lives a solitary life until his son (James Marsden) installs a caretaker robot; against he and his daughter’s (Liv Tyler) wishes. The robot upends Frank’s lonely life – filled only with books and a visit to his favourite librarian (Susan Sarandon) – with a strict regimen of exercise, diet and gardening. Stubborn at first, Frank soon realizes Robot has the ability to pull off the most calculated of heists. An unlikely friendship, and crime duo, is born.’
ROBOT AND FRANK is the first film directed by Jake Schreier and written by Christopher D Ford. It stars Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler, James Marsden and Peter Sarsgaard as the voice of Robot.
It will be released on 8th March here in the UK while in the US will be on DVD stands 12th February.
