Ross 154 (V1216 Sagittarii)

Number 7 - Robot & Frank

This is a cool little movie. Frank, played by Frank Langella, gets a caretaker robot. It's the futuristic version of the helper monkey.

Much of the movie is about the robot and Frank trying to get along with each other. It's a sort of an odd couple buddy movie. But Frank is also a retired cat burglar. It's also a heist movie. Frank is also suffering from dementia, so it's a drama.

Robot & Frank is the kind of movie that makes me really enjoy independent movies and appreciate the Cinéarts theater so close to me. And I wish many of you nearby would check it out more often. My number two movie is one that was playing there for a long time, but I don't think very many of you (if any) saw that one either.
