Golden Years is a low-budget comedy about a group of British pensioners who take up bank robing in a desperate attempt to solve their money woes. It's is a light-hearted film filled with stars who will trigger a guessing game of 'where have I seen that actor/actress before?'.
The movie is billed as being about banks, bowls and bingo. Arthur (Bernard Hill) "accidentally" robs a local bank after being faced with mounting medical bills and a depleted pension. When his wife, Martha (Virginia McKenna) finds out she's all in support of joining him and turning to a life of crime. The couple aspire to be like Bonnie and Clyde except they plan their heists around provincial banks which are located near National Trust properties.
