Stafford Film Theatre: The Duke on Tuesday 24th May 2022

Roger Michell / UK 2021 / 96 min / 12A

Postponed from last season, this is a delightful true-crime caper with a terrific lead performance from Jim Broadbent as Newcastle taxi driver, Kempton Bunton, who stole Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in 1961 and sent ransom notes demanding more government investment in care for the elderly. Despite his lies and half-truths, we now see Bunton as essentially a good person determined to change the world and save his marriage. How and why he used the Duke to achieve that is a wonderfully uplifting tale, featuring co-star Helen Mirren as his very long-suffering wife. What a lovely, rousing finally moving film this is, Can Brooks, The Guardian.
