Robot and Frank: a review

I went to see the film Robot and Frank on Friday night, and felt compelled to urge anyone interested in aging issues to see the film. It also deals with library and technology issues, so it hit a few chords with me.

Robot and Frank is set in the "near future" and is about a man who is in early-stages of dementia. His son purchases a robot for him to help him with his activities of daily living. A "relationship" arises between the man and the robot.

The film touches on issues such as caregiving, children of aging parents, dementia and "stimulation" and technology and aging, but with a light touch of humor and satire.
