STEPHEN Fry beards up and steps away from QI for a turn as art ex­pert Pro­fes­sor Giss­ing in this slick- paced heist film based on the 2008 novel of the same name by Ian Rankin. Fry’s Giss­ing is one of a group of friends – there’s also mil­lion­aire Mike McKen­zie ( Dou­glas Hen­shall) and banker Al­lan Cruick­shank ( Ken­neth Col­lard) – who, over a boozy night, dream up a way to rip off Ed­in­burgh’s pri­vate art col­lec­tion owned by a na­tional bank. They’ve got the brain­power, and try to re­cruit the crim­i­nal know- how, and sud­denly, there’s no go­ing back.
