12A - Contains infrequent strong language, moderate sex, discrimination.
In 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery’s history. Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly - he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television. What happened next became the stuff of legend and only 50 years later did the full story emerge - Kempton had spun a web of lies. The only truth was that he was a good man, determined to change the world and save his marriage with a little help from the Duke. Combining heartwarming drama with charming British comedy, this uplifting tale of petty theft and social justice stars Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren and Matthew Goode.
