James Caan as Frank in Thief

James Caan as Frank in Thief

The Barbican are giving away five pairs of tickets to see the film that inspired Ryan Goslings 2011 hit, Drive.

Thief stars James Caan as Frank, a no-nonsense ex-con safecracker who – behind the tough outer armour – has a romantic yearning for home and family, and civilian life. Keen to embrace every-day domesticity with new flame (Tuesday Weld), Frank decides to pull one last job before leaving the criminal world behind.Having always worked independently, his mistake is to throw in his lot with the Mob who, of course, have other plans for him…

Inaugurating Michael Mann’s cool, seductive catalogue of lone, obsessive professionals, as well as the gleaming night-time city visuals with which he is most associated, Thief builds to a brutal, shocking climax with one final caper, a series of double crosses and a rain of violence.

Fans of Drive, buy your tickets now.
