Save event

Set in a very near future, a retired cat burglar is given a robot programmed to provide companionship and to help his physical and mental health. 

Frank soon warms to the new digital houseguest, hatches a plan to come out of retirement using the robot as an accomplice and an unlikely double act is formed!

Featuring a fantastic and understated performance from Frank Langella and also some wonderfully realistic robotic work. 

The film will be shown with an introduction by Tony Belpaeme, Professor of Cognitive Systems and Robotics at Plymouth University and a short film trailer from the film archives of SWFTA
