Three-time Oscar® winner filmmaker Oliver Stone returns to the screen with the ferocious thriller Savages, featuring an all-star ensemble cast.
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben, a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon, a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, home-grown industry – raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with an extraordinary beauty Ophelia. Life is idyllic in their Southern California town – until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them.
When the merciless head of the Baja Cartel Elena and her brutal enforcer Lado underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon – with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent – wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel.
Based on Don Winslow's best-selling crime novel that was named one of The New York Times' Top 10 Books of 2010, Savages is a must see film.
