Mr Nice is the true life story of Howard Marks who was born into a coal mining family in South Wales in 1940's and then made it to Oxford University to study nuclear physics during the swinging sixties. With the help of fellow students, Marks built a worldwide marijuana smuggling network which became responsible for the majority of the drug smoked in the Western world during the 1970s and 1980s. Marks' adventures led him to have dealings with the CIA, PLO, IRA and the Mafia and he even became an MI6 agent himself for a period. Howard Marks is played by the brilliant Rhys Ivans, who won much acclaim for his portrayal of the folk hero.Written by

There's been some criticism leveled at Chloë Sevigny for the quality of her English accent. In fact, Savigny rehearsed diligently to perfect the accent using tapes and voice coaches, but was somewhat thrown when Bernard Rose insisted on going off-script and improvising. See more »

Being a successful international drug smuggler is sky high fun. Until the long arm of the law seriously harshes your buzz, that is.
The biopic "Mr. Nice" is the story of Howard Marks, an Oxford alum who falls into a job as a pot peddling patriarch in swinging 1960's and '70's London. Rhys Ifans smokes it as the lead here. So good, in fact, that you actually find yourself pulling for this most affable chap on a seemingly endless ride rife with mischief and misadventures. But alas, you come to realize that what you are rooting for is inevitably and irrevocably doomed for devastation.
And that every trip meets it's end.
