    Synopsis


    Escobar: Paradise Lost
    Andrea Di Stefano's crime drama Escobar: Paradise Lost stars Josh Hutcherson as Nick, an American who opens a surf shop in Colombia. Nick begins dating a young woman, who turns out to be the niece of the feared and powerful drug lord Pablo Escobar (Benicio Del Toro). When Nick gets involved in a feud with a rival store, Escobar puts a definitive end to the dispute, and soon the young man finds himself drawn into Escobar's world of crime, power, and hedonism. Eventually, he must decide what he is willing to do in order to keep this new lifestyle. Escobar: Paradise Lost screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      This thriller is a clever blend of a real person Escobar the drug lord and a dramatized semi fictional romance between a naïve Canadian who falls in love with the drug lord's niece in Colombia. You feel you are watching a true story because of the real drug lord. The action is terrifying and builds up realistically to a climax that has Breaking Bad intensity. Benicio is totally convincing in this role that is perfect for him. He doesn't over do it which is more effective. Josh Hutcherson is actually very good. It's nice to see him away from Hunger Games as a fresh faced innocent. A powerful yet believable fable

      Young surfer Nick (Josh Hutcherson) thinks all his dreams have come true when he goes to visit his brother in Columbia. Against an idyllic backdrop of blue lagoons and white beaches, he falls madly in love with Maria (Claudia Trasiac). It seems perfect until he meets her uncle, the famous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (Benicio Del Toro). Nick finds his life on the line when he's pulled into the dangerous world of the family business.

      The movie depicts the fictionalized relationship between Pablo and his niece's husband, a young Canadian who was accepted into the family as a man Pablo could trust. The trust fades as Pablo realizes the young man will never feel comfortable with the violence such a world entails.

      you don't see a lot of drug dealer movies that are as good as the epic scarface but this actor seems to be the new go-to-guy. holds your interest but still not quite as cool as the legendary tony montana
