The life story of Howard Marks, an elite British drug smuggler.
Mr. Nice is actually a misleading title because he actually takes the name Mr. Neece, the French pronunciation because his wife is acting as a fortune tellerto steal an identity:, Chloe Savigny, I believe, plays his second wife actually. Rhys Ifans plays a very bright kid from Wales who gets into Oxford and is turned on to marijuana and becomes a drug dealer through one puff, yeah right. This apparently is based on a book by Howard Marks who was the real Mr. Nice. This is really Catch Me If You Can. This is the real story of the guy. It’s really a fascinating kind of movie, especially since it seems to be based on a real guy who got away — who really felt that he shouldn’t be prosecuted as a drug dealer because it was only marijuana. Give it three and a half stars.
