MoliFilms Entertainment is proud to announce that its brand new British comedy heist movie GOLDEN YEARS will be released in UK cinemas from 29th April 2016. Written by Nick Knowles, John Milller and Jeremy Sheldon, Directed by John Miller.

Nick Knowles as well as a writer, is the presenter of the hugely popular BBC programme ‘DIY SOS’, GOLDEN YEARS is his & John Miller’s first film together, and features an all-star cast of some of the UK’s most established and respected actors from stage, screen and television including Bernard Hill (Lord of The Rings, Unforgotten), Virginia McKenna (Born Free, Sliding Doors), Alun Armstrong (New Tricks, Bleak House), Sue Johnston (Downton Abbey, The Royle Family), Una Stubbs (Sherlock), Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Amadeus), Phil Davis (Whitechapel, Poldark), Ellen Thomas (Eastenders, Rev), Brad Moore (Montana, NorthvSouth) and Mark Williams (The Harry Potter series).

MoliFilms Entertainment production, GOLDEN YEARS is produced by Mark Foligno (The Kings Speech, Moon, The Rise) and associate-produced by Lucy Selwood, Tanya Beadle and Jolien Buijs.



Fate, the financial crisis and a stubborn refusal to accept the injustices of old age have forced law-abiding, retired couple Arthur and Martha Goode into a life of crime (played by Bernard Hill and Virginia McKenna). Refusing to take the loss of their pensions lying down and simply fade away into their declining years, our characters decide to fight back and take back what’s rightfully theirs. Their plan is simple: hit a series of banks and steal back their pensions along with those of their similarly stricken friends. After all, no one would expect an elderly couple towing a caravan behind their sensible Rover of being a modern-day Bonnie-and Clyde? Pretty soon, their friends are recruited to form a motley band of unusual suspects and they prepare to take down the biggest bank of all.

Producer Mark Foligno, MoliFilms Entertainment said: “Golden Years was a gem of a film to produce, a comedy heist with heart and very much in homage to some of the great Ealing comedies. It was a joy to work with John & Nick alongside some of Britain’s finest acting talent. A film that shows growing old does not need to involve going quietly into the night.”
