Robot and Frank was the one movie we were desperate to see at Sundance this year — and now it's finally hitting theaters. Watch Frank Langella scream at his helper robot, and then slowly come around and develops an adorable larceny-based relationship with the little guy.

Here's the synopsis:

Frank (Frank Langella) a retired jewel thief gets a new lease on life when he is introduced to a surprising new companion. With the help of his new friend, he attempts to woo a local librarian (Susan Sarandon) and resume his criminal escapades. ROBOT & FRANK is directed by first time filmmaker Jake Schreier, written by Christopher Ford (TVs "Atom TV"), and produced by Galt Niederhoffer, Sam Bisbee, Jackie Kelman Bisbee and Lance Acord.

Directed by Jake Schreier and penned by Christopher D. Ford, Robot and Frank will be in theaters on August 24th.
