Chapter, Cardiff
Tickets available here

Robot and Frank (12A)
USA/2012/85mins/12A. Dir: Jake Schreier. With: Frank Langella, James Marsden, Liv Tyler, Susan Sarandon.

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. A story about friends and family in the most unexpected places.

+ Join us for a post-screening presentation, discussion and debate on Fri 20 May with Tinted Lens, a collaboration between Chapter, Cardiff University and the BFI.
