Run Robot Run!
RUN ROBOT RUN! is a comedy about life, love and robots. Compared by critics to both Woody Allen’s Sleepers and The Office, it’s a film that makes us laugh while telling a cautionary tale about where we could be headed if we continue to let our relationship with technology supercede meaningful personal contact.
