NEW SEASON 2022-2023

Chorleywood Film Club is starting the new season with a funny and charming film:

THE DUKE – Friday 16th September
(2020: Cert. 12: Comedy Drama: 95 mins: infrequent strong language, moderate sex)

Based on the true story of Kempton Bunton – a 60-year old taxi driver – who in 1961 stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first theft in the Gallery’s history.

Kempton 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. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge…..

Directed by Roger Michell, the film stars Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, Fionn Whitehead, Matthew Goode and Anna Maxwell Martin.

“Warm-hearted, funny and unexpectedly touching, too.”
Matthew Bond, The Mail On Sunday

“A charming, understated and completely enjoyable frolic about how ordinary people can do extraordinary things” Rex Reed, Observer

Tickets: £6 : Available here online or in person at Chorleywood Bookshop or on the door if still available.
