Clip From The Superb Robot & Frank – Liv Tyler Vs. Frank Langella In The Big Robo-Ethics Fight

Robot & Frank is a sci-fi comedy with a little bit of crime movie business going on. It’s funny and smart and the robot is brilliantly well executed. Frank Langella stars as… well, Frank, but not Frank Langella. Liv Tyler plays his robo-sceptic daughter, James Marsden his son and then there’s the robot with the voice of Peter Sarsgaard.

This fictional Frank is a former cat burglar who is now getting on in years. After he’s given a home help Robot to lend a hand, their relationship develops into a curious friendship – at least on the one side – while Frank contemplates a return to his criminal ways.

All in all, Robot & Frank feels like a tall tale or a shaggy dog story but a sweet one, sometimes sharp, and I’ve already found it stands up to repeat viewing.

The film will be released in UK cinemas on March 8th. Ahead of that, here’s a clip that teases one of the film’s big ideas.

… you’ll see those debates fleshed out, and more besides, in the whole movie. I liked Robot & Frank and I think you probably will too.
