Guy Ritchie directs and produces this return to his film roots. Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Hugh Grant, Charlie Hunnam and Michelle Dockery are seen in the action thriller about an English drug lord, Mickey Pearson, who wants to sell his lucrative business to the highest bidder. Pearson has worked his way up the ranks since selling grass to wealthy Oxford students and now grows huge amounts of cannabis underground on the property of various aristocrats. Now he plans to sell his life's work to an American billionaire, but the deal sets off a violent chain reaction, with murder, extortion, fraud, and smart takeovers, a devastating Youtube video and an unhappy encounter with a pig, among other things. Karolina Fjellborg at Aftonbladet says that The Gentlemen are "stars in a top mood in a fun gangster film".
