Oh, George, 7 July 2006
A true story: George Jung was one of the most notorious cocaine dealers in the USA in the 1970's. Starring Johnny Depp as George and Penelope Cruz as his beautiful but difficult wife, this movie tells the story of his life from college until his last deal, which landed him in prison (sorry) I belive Mr Jung, when approached about the idea of a movie about his life, requested that he be played by Johnny Depp. A very wise move i think. One of my favourite films of the last few years. Reminiscent of 'Goodfellows' (Ray Liotta actually plays George's father) but with a few more heart melting moments. In my humble opinion, one of the best of it's kind in the last few years.
