GOLDEN YEARS

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - TB

Di­rected by John Miller. Star­ring Bernard Hill, Vir­ginia McKenna, Una Stubbs, Si­mon Cal­low, Phil Davis “They may take our pen­sions but they can never take our lives” is the bat­tle cry that un­der­scores this gen­tle com­edy. They didn’t mean for things to turn out this way, but when re­spectable mid­dle-class re­tirees Arthur and Martha ( Hill and McKenna) dis­cover that their pen­sion has evap­o­rated, they stum­ble into a life of crime. Is it pos­si­ble to re­sist that cast? Just about. Golden Years is harm­less but de­press­ingly ram­shackle. 12A cert, lim re­lease, 96 min
