Going in style

Director: Zach Braff

Starring: Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin, Ann-Margaret, Christopher Lloyd , Matt Dillon

Grumpy Old men meets the Italian Job in Zach Braff’s remake of Going in Style (1979) which originally starred George Burns. The story follows, three New York septuagenarians (messers Caine, Freeman and Arking) desperate to make sense of their new circumstance as retired working men completely fleeced by the Corporate and Banking world. They decide to get their own back with a bank heist. A larger than life plot follows dotted with light humour and some pathos. Overall this is a feel-good farce with a lot of on screen laughs (more than in the trailer) thanks to screenwriter Theodore Melfi. Good on screen performances from Caine, Freeman and Arking with Ann-Margaret, Christopher Lloyd, Matt Dillon in support, keep the plot going.
