Robot & Frank Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival
Robot & Frank stars the brilliant Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) as a cantankerous ex-jewel thief who lives alone and has started suffering from memory loss.
When his son (James Marsden) buys a robot butler to take care of his father, Frank is far from impressed. Until, that is, he realises the robot could make an excellent partner-in-crime.
