Based on true events, The Duke is an amusing story about a good man who breaks the law for a noble cause only to become a living legend.
In 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 60-year-old taxi driver, stole Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. He sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly. What happened next became the stuff of legend. This bold act stirred up British politics and received massive media coverage. An uplifting story about a man who set out to change the world and managed to save his marriage.
