Story


Set in the near future, Frank, a retired cat burglar, has two grown kids who are concerned he can no longer live alone. They are tempted to place him in a nursing home until Frank's son chooses a different option: against the old man's wishes, he buys Frank a walking, talking humanoid robot programmed to improve his physical and mental health. What follows is an often hilarious and somewhat heart...breaking story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..is the sort of undernourished, underpopulated production that indie fans must all too frequently settle for..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
“..an imaginative plot, with interesting turns and moments of suspense..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..is an amusing charmer that may get lost amid the noise of a blockbuster-jammed summer..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
