Notes & Scribbles
- Really enjoyed this lovely wee film.
- Set in ‘the near future’. How near though? Would we want a robot butler?
- The robot was pretty impressive though.
- Was a bit worried I wasnt going to like Liv Tyler’s character but eventually warmed to her.
- Little twist near the end I didn’t see coming, but it really added to the film.
- Thought Langella was great, and the casting of Sarsgaard as the robots voice was the best robot-voice casting since Alan Rickman as Marvin in ‘Hitchikers’…’.
