A true crime movie about a crew of retired crooks who pull off a major heist in London's jewelry district. What starts off as their last criminal hurrah, quickly turns into a brutal nightmare due to greed. Based on infamous true events.
What an absolutely delightful film! If you want to see a feel-good movie of note, this is a very good choice - especially if you're middle-aged! Rob Brydon was excellent as Eric, a middle-aged man who's monotonous life is falling apart, and accidentally stumbles upon a way to feel good about himself again, and to escape from reality. This new life is beautifully filmed in contrast to his ordinary existence. The film features stunning imagery during his 'escape from reality' moments - especially the underwater scenes.
This is a beautiful, funny, uplifting film that will resonate with me for years to come, and one that I'm bound to watch again and again. The film also has a great soundtrack and score. LOVED it!
