ROBOT & FRANK
Sci-fi heist comedy starring Frank Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Susan Sarandon
Starts August 24, 2012 in Bay Area
Samuel Goldwyn Films presents ROBOT & FRANK, opening August 24, 2012 at Landmark venue tbd in Bay Area.
ROBOT & FRANK, the feature film debut of commercial director Jake Schreier, was a festival favorite at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival where it world premiered and was co-winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize. It also screened in the 2012 San Francisco International Film Festival.
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 somewhat heartbreaking story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places.
ROBOT & FRANK features an award winning cast including Academy Award® nominee Frank Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler and Academy Award® winner Susan Sarandon.
The film’s running time is 90 minutes; PG-13
