Overview

An aging thief with a fading memory finds his love for larceny reinvigorated after receiving a companion robot from his concerned son in this tender sci-fi comedy-drama starring Academy Award nominee Frank Langella. Frank (Langella) is a former criminal living out his twilight years in quiet solitude. Though frequent trips to the local library keep him physically active and mentally stimulated, there's little question that his memory isn't what it used to be, and lately his grown children have begun to express concern over the fact that he lives alone. Bestowed a caretaker robot capable of offering engaging interaction and tending to basic household chores, Frank at first resents his android helper. But in time he lets his guard down and begins to actually enjoy the companionship of his new domestic partner. Later, when the future of the local library is threatened, Frank falls back into his old ways and discovers that his robot also doubles as a competent criminal sidekick.

    It may minimize the place for humor in a serious movie basically

    It may minimize the place for humor in a serious movie basically about old age to call it "delightful," but we found it delightful. It works. The acting is perfect and the surprises are amazing and relevant to The Baby Boomer's retirements. Are we going to have just Japanese robots in the future? I hope we can talk to them like in this partially scifi movie. Friends are often hard to find.
