Movie Night: Robot and Frank

robot-and-frank-52c55f930837cSet in the near future, an ex-jewel thief receives a gift from his son: a robot butler programmed to look after him. But soon the two companions try their luck as a heist team. Starring Peter Sarsgaard, Frank Langella, Liv Tyler, Susan Sarandon and James Marsden.

I didn’t really know what to expect when I sat down to watch Robot & Frank, but after seeing it on a variety of lists for best movie of 2013 and seeing it’s high scores on Rotten Tomatoes (86%) and IMDb (7.1/10) I was looking forward to it.
 
Robot & Frank was a fantastic heart warming story set in the near future where Frank, an ageing retired Jewel thief is given a domestic robot by his son. Frank is resistant against the Robot at first, but quickly realises he can use it to aid him in burglary.
 
The character development in this movie is very special, the relationship that Frank and the Robot grow into is translated brilliantly in film. Almost every shot is beautiful in this movie and the pacing is perfect, Robot & Frank was a fantastic watch and after watching it on Netflix, I still plan on picking it up on Blu-Ray in the near future. Robot & Frank get’s an 8/10 from me.
