The Gentlemen


American Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey), who’s built a criminal empire in Britain, tries to sell it, but the deal becomes very complex and dangerous. Guy Ritchie’s first gangster movie in a decade has an expectedly complicated story that jumps back and forth in time. It’s a miracle the film works as well as it does, but Ritchie knows how to sell it, providing us with stylish visuals, a sense of humor, constant surprises and a colorful cast. In this case, we have McConaughey as a Rhodes scholar gone bad, Charlie Hunnam as a cool and capable right-hand man and Hugh Grant as a sleazy private eye.

2019-Britain-U.S. 113 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed by Guy Ritchie. Cast: Matthew McConaughey (Michael ”Mickey” Pearson), Charlie Hunnam (Raymond Smith), Henry Golding (”Dry Eye”), Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Colin Farrell… Hugh Grant, Eddie Marsan.

Trivia: Ritchie has a cameo as a Miramax executive. Kate Beckinsale was originally cast in Dockery’s role.
