Kirby's rating of the film Robot and Frank

Things like dementia, bank heists, and robots don't seem like they are compatible. They aren't at first, but they meld together quite nicely by the ending. I felt like there was wasted potential with Frank not wanting to wipe the robot's memory. They made it sound like it was because he was empathetic, but a man with dementia might have other reasons. Maybe they touched on it, but it was too subtle for me to catch.
