Full film details

For their entire lives, Arthur (Bernard Hill) and Martha Goode (Virginia McKenna) have been, well, good. Law-abiding members of the community who have always paid their taxes and honoured their commitments, the long-married couple are looking forward to settling down to a pleasant life of retirement.

That is until pension pay-outs are slashed and they learn they will be left with a fraction of their expected income.

And so, as any disgruntled senior citizens would do, they decide to take action. But instead of complaining to the local government, they don their masks and arm themselves – with flasks of tea in addition to handguns – and storm the counter of the local bank, stuffing the contents of the vault into a shopping trolley.

Pensioners turned bandits, the couple are on a mission to reclaim the funds that they worked long and hard to earn. But are they destined for a life of leisure, or are they to spend their final years behind bars?

Director John Miller (Living in Hope) teams up with TV writer and presenter Nick Knowles (DIY SOS) for the comedy screenplay, which features a home-grown cast of British favourites including Hill (Lord of the Rings), McKenna (Sliding Doors) alongside Philip Davis (Whitechapel) and Sue Johnston (Coronation Street).
