Johnnie Walker Blue Label - A Gentleman's Wager

'The Gentleman's Wager'
I like Jude Law. I like what is does on screen. I like his panache, his style, his swagger. You may have a different opinion and that is fine. For me, ever since I recognised him as a standout in film for the first time in the late 90's movie Gattaca (also one of my sit back whisky movies), I have enjoyed the work he has done. Needless to say seeing him feature in 'The Gentleman's Wager' makes it hard for me to ignore the shear enjoyment of it. You may also recognise the face, if not the accent, of Giancarlo Giannini an man of extensive acting experience and swagger of equal measure. A team up made in heaven.
The story of a man on a quest for a rare experience; ‘The Gentleman’s Wager’ tells the story of a wager between two men which results in a truly rare experience as part of their quest for personal progress. Filmed in the British Virgin Islands and London, the beautifully shot film sees Law in the role of a man who, despite having it all, proposes a wager as an opportunity to challenge himself to create an original performance in order to win a money-can’t-buy experience.
So without further ramblings sit back and enjoy 'The Gentleman's Wager'.

If this does not make you want to hang out in a dance hall drinking Johnnie Walker Blue Label I am not sure what will. Maybe a loaded bank account will do it too...
