Catch the Coen Brothers film Gambit now on Netflix, and grab the soundtrack by Lakeshore Records. Scored by Rolfe Kent (Reign Over Me, Thank You For Smoking, The Hunting Party), with music from Robby Armstrong, Peggy Lee and Moe Brandy, the classy soundtrack is a smart, sassy and groovy accompaniment to this modern take on the 1966 film (which starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine), is an easy watch for the Independence Day weekend.

If you’re going to con your boss, who happens to be an eccentric multi-millionaire (played deliciously by Alan Rickman), hiring the effervescent Cameron Diaz to help make it happen could be the best choice ever, unless of course, the boss is superbly charming and Diaz’s (“PJ”) happens to be a dead ringer for his deceased wife. With the disgruntled art collector (Colin Firth) driving the heist, hilarity is sure to ensue. Also not to be missed: Stanley Tucci’s arty “German” character.
