Go and see it. Lovely, sweet little film.


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. What follows is an often hilarious and somewhat heartbreaking story about finding friends and family in the most unexpected places.

This is a really warm film. Left the cinema feeling really entertained. It's poignant at times without being ott and is genuinely very funny in other parts

The ending almost had me tearing up when it all hits Frank.

I want to see it, but sadly it's on a damn limited release and isn't showing close to me.

Looks lime a damn good flick. Thanks for the heads up Simon. I had no idea about this movie period.

Watched it a few weeks back. Pleasant film. Nothing earth-shattering but like kind of like a warm hug from a loved one.

Damn good movie. Great acting, nice touching look at the coping of growing old and just really well written.

Did not see the twist with Frank and the librarian coming and the subsequent melt down was near heartbreaking.

Definite a good flick for a lazy Sunday day.

I've got a feeling that now I'll see the twist between Frank and the librarian coming.

I barely remember a thing about this film, weird that I seemingly really enjoyed it.

I watched this a little while back. I enjoyed it, but thought that Her was much more interesting.
