A Star-Studded Caper, “The Gentlemen” Will Warm Up Your Winter

If you’re starting to fear the January blues, this should change your tune. “The Gentlemen”, a new film from Guy Ritchie, is a thrilling comedic caper ready to land on your doorstep. An old-school ensemble piece, it’s an ideal crowd-pleaser done to perfection.

“‘The Gentlemen’ follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London,” the description explains. “When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business forever it triggers plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him.”

The cast is undoubtedly star-studded — in addition to McConaughey, expect to see Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant.

Director Guy Ritchie described the film as a return to his roots — and the project was an easy sell, right from the get-go.

“It’s a good cast but we just asked people, and they were around,” he explained. “Everyone wanted to do it, so I knew that everyone was into it. I didn’t have to explain things to them. They got the joke.”

We’re sure we will too.
