Intense Mark Rylance psychological thriller with ending no one could ever see coming has landed on Netflix

The cast includes Mark Rylance, Johnny Flynn, Simon Russell Beale, Zoey Deutch, Dylan O'Brien, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Alan Mehdizadeh.

An intense psychological thriller with an ending no one could ever see coming has landed on Netflix.

One to add to your weeknight watchlist is the Mark Rylance led film directed by Graham Moore, who co-wrote World War Two codebreaking thriller The Imitation Game.

The so-called hidden gem sees Rylance take on the role of Leonard Burling, a humble tailor in 1956 Chicago with a shop in gang-controlled territory.

Burling decides to go along with the gang's activities until one night, a man with a gunshot wound shows up at his shop, things get thrown topsy-turvy.

Titled The Outfit, you can take a look at the trailer below:

The gangster film also stars the likes of Johnny Flynn, Simon Russell Beale, Zoey Deutch, Dylan O'Brien, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Alan Mehdizadeh.

With a solid 85 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 92 percent audience score, it seems that people are taking well to the 2022 film.

A very satisfied viewer gave the film '10/10' and called it 'one of the best movies I have seen in a while', with specific praise for the twists in the film.

"The Outfit. On Netflix. Mark Rylance. Two words. Watch it," one person tweeted.

Someone else said the plot twists would 'have you on the edge of your seat' and they'd '100 percent recommend' you see this movie.

Another called it 'so underrated', which might be why you've not heard of The Outfit before but should definitely check it out now.

They urged people to pay attention to every detail and line of dialogue, saying it was a 'precise' movie where each and every detail mattered.

Others praised the small-scale nature of the film, saying it basically takes place in two rooms and is all the more engaging for it.

Mark Rylance was particularly praised for his performance, with the lauded actor getting lots of appreciation for being the guy who tied the whole ensemble together.

One critic wrote: "Rylance carries the character study convincingly, projecting flashes of emotional insight across his face while maintaining his character’s mystery.

"If viewers walk away dissatisfied with the answers to Leonard’s past, they will not blame Rylance."

Another added: "If you’re in the mood for a smart drama with mystery, finesse, and a shocking amount of heart, odds are you’ll enjoy the smooth, swift ride The Outfit takes you on."

We won't spoil the twists for you but if you want to give it a go, The Outfit is available to stream now on Netflix.
