Having fallen foul of the pension crisis after five decades of law-abiding, tax-paying citizenship, retired couple Martha (Virginia McKenna, Born Free) and Arthur (Bernard Hill, Wolf Hall) are forced into an unexpected life of crime in this star-studded comedy heist caper.
Martha and Arthur refuse to accept this injustice of old age. The plan is simple – the financial industry has stolen their hard-earned pensions, so they’re going to steal them back, sorting out their down-on-their-luck friends and saving their social club from being turned into a supermarket at the same time.
Directed by John Miller (Living in Hope) and produced by Mark Foligno (The King’s Speech), this charming comedy gathers an ensemble of renowned British stars including Alun Armstrong (Braveheart), Una Stubbs (Sherlock), Philip Davis (Poldark), Sue Johnston (Downton Abbey) and Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral).
