Read synopsis


When Frank, a retired jewel thief, shows signs of losing his memory, his children give him a robot butler to care for him, and salve their consciences. But Frank soon has other ideas for his super-smart new sidekick, and the two begin planning a robbery. Part classic caper movie, part topical meditation on ageing, Jake Schreier's witty Sundance award winner is refreshingly unsentimental, and beautifully played by a sparkling cast.
