He was Britains most wanted man. He spent seven years in Americas toughest prison. You'll like him. Based on the hugely successful autobiography of the same name, Mr Nice tells the incredible story of the life of Howard Marks, "the worlds most sophisticated drug smuggler". At the height of his powers he had 43 aliases, eighty-nine phone lines and owned twenty five companies trading throughout the world, whilst simultaneously smuggling consignments of up to 30 tons of marijuana and keeping contacts with organisations as diverse as MI6, the CIA, the IRA and the Mafia. Set throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s and with an all star cast led by Rhys Ifans, Chloe Sevigny and David Thewlis, this is the ultimate tale of sex, drugs and rock and roll.
