Bernard Rose writes and directs this comedy drama based on the life of celebrated British drug smuggler Howard Marks.
Rhys Ifans stars as Marks, the charismatic Welshman who is drawn into drug dealing after he graduates from Oxford University and qualifies to become a school teacher.
Marks's legitimate career soon disappears in a puff of smoke, however, after a favour for an old friend leads to a lucrative cannabis-smuggling trip.
By the time his career reaches its zenith in the 1980s, Marks is smuggling 30-ton consignments of marijuana from Pakistan and Thailand to America and Canada and has forged dubious connections with members of the IRA and the British secret services.
Chloe Sevigny and David Thewlis co-star.
