Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
Though Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Ian McKellen star together for the first time in a movie, they had previously done a play together called Dance of Death.
It seems like you've had quite a past.
While Roy and Betty are at Slough railway station, a train in a partly purple livery speeds through. This is one of the new Elizabeth line trains, which are still (late 2019) running experimentally and did not exist in 2009, when the film was set. Roy also leaves on a GWR branded train, in 2009 this would have had a First Great Western livery, as the GWR brand didn't return until 2015.
