Robot & Frank (winner of the Sundance 2012 Alfred P. Sloan prize) is one of those quiet little films that falls into the overlooked but definitely worth watching category. The film portrays the importance of family, coping with an aging parent’s mental deterioration, odd friendships, change and bittersweet endings.  Add in Susan Sarandon as the local librarian, a robot as a health care provider, book and jewel heists and it all adds up to a very good film. The film also gives a glimpse into the near future, that of robots as companions.
