Mr. Nice

Nuclear physicist, gentleman, spy, drug kingpin. Based on the bestselling autobiography of the same name, Mr. Nice is the extraordinary true story of Howard Marks. During the mid 80's, Marks (Rhys Ifans) had forty-three aliases, eighty-nine phone lines and owned twenty-five companies throughout the world. Whether bars, recording studios or offshore banks, all were money laundering vehicles serving one core activity: drug trafficking. While also working as a government spy, the media dubbed him “the most sophisticated drug baron of all time” and at the height of his career, he was smuggling shipments of up to thirty tons of marijuana into the US and Canada. Co-starring David Thewlis, Crispin Glover and Chloe Sevigny.
