Roger Michell / GB, 2020 / 95 min.
It only happened once that a painting was stolen from the National Gallery in London. In 1961, 60-year-old taxi driver Kempton Burton stole a Goya, demanding as ransom that the government make television free to watch for all old age pensioners.
A London taxi driver who wants to write for the stage bombards the BBC with his plans. And turns out to be completely insensitive to the injustice in the world.
