About 16+ min. into the film: to illustrate how small Britain is, its territory is overlaid onto a map of North America. The Canadian province of New Brunswick (NB) is colour-coded as if it belongs to the United States. See more »
Making a splash with the gentry.
Oh, I like to make a splash whenever possible.
Well, you also seem to understand the significance of a proper attire.
Indeed I do. I believe a sense of ownership is vital in every aspect of life, perhaps never more so than when it comes to wardrobe. For every look there is a season, and for every season a strategy.

This film is GOOD and almost GREAT
When all the critic reports come out and the inevitable 'mediocre' scorings appear don't be worried: this is a very good film and Ritchie is back to his best.
Snatch is a favourite of mine and I must say that this film surpasses it, in story, tone and cinematography. The twists are good, the jokes are great but what stands out are the performances. A 'star studded cast' seems to be the highlight of every movie nowadays but let me tell you, the majority of the performances in this film are oscar worthy and pure gold. I say majority of course because Jeremy Strong enlisted one of the worst acting performances I've seen this decade!
It is by far a better tribute to cinema than that 'Once upon a time' nonsense and I urge you to see this film.
The only drawback for me is the third act. Too many pipes are introduced late in the film which contributes to a somewhat lacklustre and crammed finale. But apart from that a solid film.
