Check out the trailer for the new movie entitled Robot and Frank, a near future comedy/drama about an elderly man with Alzheimer’s whose family gets him a robot to help him out around the house. In time, Frank and the Robot begin to bond and form a relationship that even begins to supersede the one he has with his own children. Naturally, things get a bit awry when Frank decides to go back to his old ways and use the Robot to pull some heists!
Not only does this look like an interesting movie from a purely technological angle, I looks downright touching and deep. The existential issues it explores, like how one does not need emotions in order to form bonds, or how Frank is more willing to go on the lam (I assume) than erase his friend’s memory. Significant! Looking forward to it. Expect a review
