Robot & Frank: Take One

Robot & Frank (2012). Indie film directed by Jake Schreier, screenplay by Christopher D. Ford.  Frank Langella (Frank); Rachel Ma (Robot); Peter Sarsgaard (voice of Robot); Susan Sarandon (Jennifer the Librarian); Jeremy Sisto (The Sheriff); Liv Tyler (Madison); James Marsden (Hunter); and others.

Robot & Frank makes a good companion piece for Beasts of the Southern Wild. They are very different tales, yet both approach the human condition with compassion and imagination, intelligence and humor.

A little more in the next post. But first, any initial responses from someone else who has seen this?
