Set in the not too distant (and not too different) future, Robot & Frank depicts the blossoming friendship between Frank (Langella), a retired jewelry burglar at the onset of dementia, and his smart-talking caretaker robot (Sarsgaard). When an oil tycoon threatens to digitise all the books in Frank’s beloved local library, Frank recruits his new ally in one last heist to save the day. Enjoyable enough, though pretty standard feel-good US indie fare: a quaint and quirky story with a life-affirming message and some safe and easy commentary peppered on top.
