Pathe UK are set to release The Duke starring Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren on DVD from 13th June. The comedy drama is directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill), fancy winning a DVD copy?
THE DUKE is a moving true story that celebrates a man who was determined to live a meaningful life. Set in 1961, it follows the story of Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, who 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 proceeded to send ransom notes declaring that he would only return the painting on the condition that the government invest more in care for the elderly, specifically bringing attention to his long running campaign for pensioners to receive free television.
What happened next is the stuff of legends…only 50 years later did the full story emerge and it was revealed that 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 this, is a wonderfully uplifting tale that will be seen on film for the first time.
The film cast also includes the likes of Matthew Goode, Charlotte Spencer, Fionn Whitehead, and John Heffernan.
