Academy Award winners Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz unite in this extraordinary story of the volatile love affair between Columbia’s most famous journalist, Virginia Vallejo and the world’s most feared drug lord, Pablo Escobar. As their passionate affair intensified, so did the brutal violence and tyranny that surrounded Escobar’s empire. As her world comes crashing down around her, Virginia must decide if she will support the man she loves, or help bring down one of the most vicious criminals the world has ever known.
It took Bardem, who serves as one of the film’s producers as well as co-star, several years to put the film together, which is based on Virginia’s book, “Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar”. This thrilling saga of the downfall of one of the most infamous crime lords of the 20th Century is available on DVD and digital from August 29. MA15+
