Overview

Based on real events, this charming crime caper tells the improbable story of Kempton Bunton, a taxi driver from Newcastle who stole a Goya portrait from the National Gallery in 1961. Roger Michell’s final feature film is a nostalgic look at a post-war Britain on the verge of the swinging sixties. Starring Jim Broadbent as Bunton and Helen Mirren as his despairing wife, this wonderfully warm tale will have you rooting for the bumbling antihero.
