Charming sci-fi: Robot and Frank

This week I thought I’d bring you a look at a charming new movie that’s hopefully going to be coming out soon in local theatres called Robot and Frank.

It’s kind of a cross between I:Robot and Bicentennial Man, and stars Frank Langella as an elderly ex-con who inherits a robot for a helper.  Soon he realises that this robot is able to help him in other ways.
It’s cute, charming and probably one of the most surprising movies to come out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Have a look:

It’ll be in US theatres at the end of August, so hopefully we’ll see it here around then too.

And if not, I may just have to write another open letter to Ster Kinekor and Nu Metro.
