From writer/director Guy Ritchie comes The Gentlemen, a thrilling and sophisticated action comedy. The Gentlemen follows American ex-pat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who has built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word hits the street that Pearson wants to get out of the business, the wolves come out – with elaborate schemes, bribery and blackmail, in an attempt to steal his fortune out from under him. Featuring an all-star cast, including Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell, and Hugh Grant. Initial reviews have been mixed, with the film getting 78% on Rotten Tomatoes, 3/5 from Empire and only 2/5 from 2/5. Its release is timely, hitting cinemas in Australia on 1 January.  The Gentlemen would no doubt be a thrilling way to start the new year.
