ROBOT & FRANK (Theatrical Release USA 2012)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

Robot & Frank, 
an easy-on-the-mind, fill-in-some-spare-time movie, shows Frank Langella's skill in depicting the role of an elderly, bored, and retired burglar. James Marsden superbly plays his concerned son while Liv Tyler plays his daughter. The movie follows a simple outline and leaves its viewers with the feeling of enjoying a good dessert.
