Director Jake Schreier's Robot and Frank is currently available on DVD, bringing this touching story home for the whole family to enjoy. Frank Langella stars as Frank, a retired burglar whose deteriorating mental and physical health have his grown children worried he cannot live by himself. Instead of placing him in a home, they buy Frank a robot programmed to improve his physical and mental well-being. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has provided us with an exclusive clip from this heartwarming drama, featuring Frank heading to the library just before it closes, as an excuse to chat with the librarian Jennifer (Susan Sarandon).
Set in the near future, Frank, a retired cat burglar, has two grown kids who are concerned he can no longer live alone. They are tempted to place him in a nursing home until Frank's son chooses a different option: against the old man's wishes, he buys Frank a walking, talking humanoid robot programmed to improve his physical and mental health. What follows is an often hilarious and heartwarming story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places. Starring an ensemble cast led by Academy Award nominee Frank Langella (2008, Best Actor, Frost/Nixon), Academy Award Winner Susan Sarandon (1995, Best Actress, Dead Man Walking), Liv Tyler and James Marsden.
