Gossip Girl's Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch and and Aaron Johnson make up the three partners in both a polyamourous relationship and a quasi-legal medical marijuana business. The trio get more than they bargained for when they turn down an offer from a Mexican drug cartel.
The three share an idylic, if unconventional, existence on Laguna Beach, keeping up appearances as law-abiding medical growers while they make their real money shipping pot out of the state. The cartel betrays the spotless illusion of the Americans' trade; they the violence of the Mexican drug war home by kidnapping the guys' girlfriend to make a point. The guys hatch a daring plan with the help of a corrupt DEA agent played by John Travolta.
Fans of Oliver Stone's crazier offerings like Natural Born Killers will find plenty to like in Savages' violent, drug-fueled surrealism. And, those looking for eye-candy will be pleased with the view offered by the three leads. Early reviews also praise the performances of cartel bad guys Salma Hayak and Benicio Del Toro.
Oliver Stone's new film Savages opens on July 6th.
