Rated 94% on Rotten Tomatoes!
A loveable new British comedy/drama starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren.
Based on a true story: 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. Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly. What happened next became the stuff of legend. 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 — how and why he used the Duke to achieve that is a wonderfully uplifting tale.
“Britain hasn’t lost the ability to make films like this after all. We’ve had it stashed in the back of the wardrobe all along.” –
“THE DUKE does droll to gentle perfection.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Steet Journal
