TRAILER: “Robot & Frank”

Director Jake Schreier’s Robot & Frank was unveiled at the Sundance Film Festival and picked up by Sony. I have to admit, this (probably spoilery) trailer won me over instantly.

Robot & Frank is about an aging jewel thief (Frank, played by Frank Langella) who is suffering from dementia. His son (James Marsden) buys him a robot companion (voiced by Peter Sarsgaard)…who Frank then teaches to commit crimes. The film also stars Liv Tyler as Frank’s anti-robot daughter and Susan Sarandon as Frank’s love interest.

Watch this trailer and tell me it’s not charming…
