The Gentleman's Wager tells the story of two men gambling on the rarest odds. Ask anyone you know, and they're sure to say there's nothing classier than sipping a tumbler of Johnnie Walker Blue Label under the summer light, especially if you happen to be relaxing on a rare Italian boat off the coast of the Virgin Islands.
Sadly, not everyone gets to experience this joy on a regular basis, so when Jude Law finds himself in this very position, he doesn't want it to be for the last time. While he's floating in the lap of luxury on his friend Giancarlo Giannini's impressive vessel, glass of Blue Label in hand, he offers up a proposal befitting a gent like himself.
He decides he wants the 1928 rarer than rare model that he's recently become accustomed to. But he doesn't want to buy it, he wants to win it.
Being a man of refined taste, he proposes a wager like no other. To get the boat, he'll have to impress Giancarlo with a dance, choreographed by himself, and performed back in London. When the prize is this priceless money won't do, so he sets about creating a truly remarkable spectacle in the hope Giancarlo will relinquish the boast and let him sail this beauty any time he please.
Will Jude be able to impress Giancarlo? Will Giancarlo submit keys to a boat this rare for any dance, no matter how toe-tapping? Well, you'll just have to watch.
The beautifully shot film was directed by Jake Scott and filmed in London and the British Virgin Islands. I'm sure you'll agree it's the perfect compliment to the world's leading luxury blended scotch whiskey, Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
