Finally, Hunter gets him a robot caretaker, but Frank soon learns that it is as useful as a burglary aide. As Frank tries to restart his old profession, the uncomfortable realities of a changing world and his worsening dementia threaten to take beyond what any reboot can do for him.
Plot: Curmudgeonly old Frank lives by himself. His routine involves daily visits to his local library, where he has a twinkle in his eye for the librarian. His grown children are concerned about their father’s well-being and buy him a caretaker robot. Initially resistant to the idea, Frank soon appreciates the benefits of robotic support – like nutritious meals and a clean house – and eventually begins to treat his robot like a true companion. With his robot’s assistance, Frank’s passion for his old, unlawful profession is reignited, for better or worse.

An amusing & affecting look at technology, aging, and family
A funny & touching film that is very effective at getting the audience to identify and empathize with Frank Langella’s aging character, a former cat burglar who is gradually growing senile. Frank’s son buys him a robot caretaker –a health-nut disciplinarian with a soft spot in its hardware heart — and Frank eventually persuades the robot to be his partner-in-crime in some late-life capers he has planned.
The film is cleverly and ambiguously set in the “near future,” so the 30- & 40-somethings of today could easily be the Franks of tomorrow: still using the slang of the 2000s & 2010s, not scared of the latest technology but still somewhat befuddled by it, and rather aghast when young people ask us about our quaint “relationship with printed media.”
Not without my robot
A great central performance by Frank L. here, but also great supporting cast. And even though Liv Tyler only has a small role she shine more than in another robot starring movie she did a while ago (though I wouldn’t compare the Hugh Jackman starring fun ride with this one at all). And talking about the robot: It’s great how you feel for something that tells you not to feel for it. It’s a nice and effective trick to get the audience involved, even when morality is vague at best.
A clever movie, that deservedly won a few awards too. It’s not flawless, which can be said about any other movie too, but it does have a big heart even if sometimes you might not be able to feel it (no pun intended). And while I wasn’t sure about the ending when the end credits rolled, I think there was no other way to end it now! :o)
