Based on the bestselling autobiography of the same name, MR NICE is the extraordinary story of Howard Marks.
During the mid 1980s Howard Marks (Rhys Ifans) had forty-three aliases, eighty-nine phone lines and owned twenty-five companies throughout the world. Whether bars, recording studios or offshore banks, all were money laundering vehicles serving the core activity: dope dealing.
At the height of his career he was smuggling consignments of up to thirty tonnes of marijuana from Pakistan and Thailand to America and Canada and had contact with organisations as diverse as MI6, the CIA, the IRA and the Mafia.
