Set in the 1960s, Sparkle and her two sisters form a singing group and dream of becoming stars beyond the affluent Detroit suburb where they come from, and where they are already well-known. But as the sisters become more famous, the close-knit nature of their family begins to fall apart. Features the late Whitney Houston's final screen performance.
Robot and Frank is a story about a ex jewel thief in the near future who receives a robot as a butler from his son. After a while they team up to rob more jewelry. This comedy provides a cute promise but I think this could be an interesting interaction between a man and a machine. August 2012 release.
