Robot & Frank (the movie)

This was kind of a sweet little movie. Frank Langella plays Frank, an aging ex-con who is experiencing the early stages of dementia. His children arrange for a Robot to come and help him maintain his house, plant a garden, and cook his food. However, Frank discovers another benefit to having a Robot:  teaching the Robot to do breaking and entering helps Frank to sharpen his failing mind. Robot and Frank target the Public Library, as well as the home of the new Public Library Director, Jake (Jeremy Stong), a young whippersnapper who wants to remove all the books and have them digitized. Susan Sarandon plays the old-school librarian who still appreciates printed books.
