Sundance Film Festival entries are historically known for being more idiosyncratic than mainstream fare. All the same, the 2012 breakout flick Robot and Frank is pretty unconventional, even by indie cinema standards.
Oscar-nominee Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon) stars in Robot and Frank as… well, Frank, a retiree living in a “near future,” which is not so different from the year 2012 – albeit, it has robots and vehicles that look like a cross between a Smart Car and a Moped (among other pieces of sci-fi technology). Frank’s grown son and daughter (James Mardsen and Liv Tyler) decide to not move him to a retirement home; instead, they purchase their old man a robotic caretaker (voiced by Peter Sarsgaard).
