Must Watch: First Trailer for Sundance Indie Comedy 'Robot & Frank'
"Frank, my memory can be used against you." Samuel Goldwyn has unveiled the official trailer for Robot & Frank, the charming indie comedy that premiered at Sundance this year (I quite enjoyed it - my review). Frank Langella stars as an aging thief in the near future who is given the gift of a robot butler to help take care of him, even though he thinks he doesn't need him. Liv Tyler stars as his daughter who gives him the robot, James Marsden as his son, along with Susan Sarandon, in this quirky, comical, brilliant indie. It's very light on many effects or style, but it's a charming film, worth seeing in my opinion. Check this out!

Robot & Frank is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Jake Schreier, making his feature directorial debut. The screenplay was written by Christopher D. Ford, also making his feature debut. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (Alex's review).
