Going in Style is a remake of a film with the same title released in 1979. The original film’s direction was carried out by Martin Brest and the cast included George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg portraying three elderly friends. These three pals constantly experienced financial troubles and lack of money made them do strange things like eating dog food. One day they decided that they were fed up with it. The plan was simple: they simply decided to rob a bank. The trouble is that they can’t even hold a gun in their hands and in general, all of them are quite clueless. That’s a satirical depiction of how the life of the elderly goes in America and what a person is able to do when pressed with circumstances. A new version of the film is almost the same.
