Film: The Duke

20 October 2022 @ 20:00 - 22:00


Director: Roger Michell (2022)
Length: 1 hr 36 mins
Cast: Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, Fionn Whitehead, Aimee Kelly.

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.  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.
