Robot & Frank (20-Jan-2012)

Director: Jake Schreier

Writer: Christopher D. Ford

Keywords: Crime/Comedy, Robots

An elderly ex-jewel thief earns an unlikely partner in crime upon receiving a special gift from his son.

Frank, an aging ex-convict suffering from progressively-worsening dementia who is reluctant to move into an assisted-living facility, receives a gift from attorney son Hunter of a robotic butler designed to permit him to continue living alone. When Frank realizes that the butler is unable to discern a difference between above-board endeavors and criminal pursuits, however, he decides to use his new friend for purposes significantly more nefarious than Hunter would have intended.
