Starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren, The Duke tells the true story of the theft of Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London in 1961. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the gallery’s history. Kempton Bunton, the 60-year-old taxi driver who stole the painting, sent ransom notes saying that he would return it on the condition that the government agreed to provide television for free to the elderly. What happened next became the stuff of legend and only 50 years later did the full story emerge.
