Jim Broadbent is flat-out stellar in this brilliant, supremely entertaining retelling of the famous 1961 case of the elderly British man who stole Goya’s ‘Portrait of the Duke of Wellington’ from the National Museum in order to raise money for charity. Directed by the late Roger Michell (‘Notting Hill’) and co-starring Helen Mirren, the film is a spot-on mix of hilarity and cause célèbre that cleverly evokes the cinematography and stylization of retro-60s cinema. It’s a hidden British gem but one that should not be overlooked.

4.5/5 stars
