The official trailer for the highly anticipated film The Duke has been uploaded online. The plot revolves around the 1961 theft of Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington by Kempton Bunton whom The Guardian in their official review referred to as an "upstart...liar...crook...idealist...[and] a committed socialist."

The film, which premiered at last year's Venice film festival, features performances by Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren.
