THE GENTLEMEN (2019)
The Gentlemen || Big Dave, editor of the Daily Print tabloid, is snubbed by cannabis baron Mickey Pearson at a party and hires private investigator Fletcher, to investigate Pearson’s links to Lord Pressfield, a Royal Duke with a heroin-addicted daughter. Fletcher offers to sell his findings (typed up as a screenplay entitled Bush) to Pearson’s right-hand man, Raymond, for £20,000,000.
Born in poverty in the United States, Pearson won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University, where he began selling marijuana to fellow students before dropping out and building up his criminal enterprise by violence. He plans to sell his business to American billionaire Matthew Berger for $400,000,000 so he can retire peacefully with his wife, Rosalind. Pearson shows Berger one of the labs where he grows his cannabis under the estates of aristocratic landlords, who need cash for the upkeep of their stately homes. Pearson is later approached by Dry Eye, an underboss for Chinese gangster Lord George.
Dry Eye offers to buy out Pearson’s business, but he refuses. Pearson’s lab is then raided by amateur MMA fighters and aspiring YouTubers “The Toddlers” who overpower the lab’s guards, steal a van-load of marijuana and upload a rap video of their caper online. The fighters’ trainer, known only as Coach, orders them to delete the video and is horrified when he discovers that the cannabis belongs to Pearson. However Pearson begins transferring his cannabis plants out of the estates. He also agrees to bring home Pressfield’s wayward daughter Laura. Raymond retrieves Laura from a council estate where she is living with several other addicts.
