Stone of Destiny - Fun caper about a troupe of Glaswegian students with Scottish nationalist leanings who decide to steal the Stone of Scone from Westminster Abbey. Since the event occurred in 1951, the guys were not shot on sight as they entered a building of global historical importance after hours, and they didn't trigger any alarm system. The film itself is suitable for kids, though they likely won't really understand how important it was for the students to take on the task. Worthwhile, though not so visually amazing that it can't wait until Netflix.
