New Poster and Trailer for ‘Robot & Frank’

Robot & FrankThe trailer and poster for Robot & Frank have been released online today by Samuel Goldwyn. Robot and Frank stars Frank Langella, Susan Sarandon, James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Peter Sarsgaard, Jeremy Sisto and Jeremy Strong, the film is set in the near future, where an aging curmudgeon and retired jewel thief Frank (Frank Langella) lives a solitary life until his son (James Marsden) installs a caretaker robot; against he and his daughter’s (Liv Tyler) wishes.

 

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. The screenplay was written by Christopher D. Ford, also making his feature debut.

 

I must say, I love the idea of this film. It’s seems so approbate for the age we live in. Why not buy old lonely people robots. When Apple makes them I mean.

 

Alex Billington wrote, “I’m a big sucker for anything science fiction, especially when it’s very well-done indie sci-fi, and Sundance usually only programs a few of these kind of films every year. The one this year, that deserves a very worthy comparison to Duncan Jones’ Moon (Sundance ’09), is Jake Schreier’s Robot & Frank.” He added, “I really believe “brilliant” is one of the best words to describe this film, as it was as touching and captivating, as it was entertaining and intelligent.”
