Loving Pablo Escobar

About the film

Loving Pablo chronicles the rise and fall of the world’s most feared drug lord Pablo Escobar, and his volatile love affair with Colombia’s most famous journalist Virginia Vallejo throughout the reign of terror that tore a country apart.

Bardem and Cruz give outstanding performances, capturing the couple’s volatile relation– ship in all its complexity. Disturbing and thought-provoking, Loving Pablo explores the political climate and corrupt society that allowed Escobar’s ascent, while forcing us to question our own fascination with this inscrutable persona.
