This British comedy, with an amazing cast which includes Simon Callow, Bernard Hill, Virginia McKenna and Phil Davis deals with the pension crisis and a refusal to accept the injustice of old age. Normally law abiding retirees Arthur and Martha Goode enter into a life of crime, deciding to fight back by robbing banks. A refreshing and very funny comedy.
