Nash Edgerton heads to Cinema Nova as part of their MEET THE FILMMAKERS series to discuss his latest 420-themed black comedy, GRINGO.
An exhilarating mix of comedy, white-knuckle action and drama, GRINGO finds mild-mannered businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) at the mercy of his back-stabbing corporate colleagues (Joel Edgerton and a vampy Charlize Theron) and a wife who is gradually sending him broke (Thandie Newton). Sent to a company facility in Mexico to check on the progress of a ‘pot pill’ that is poised to dominate the market once the government gives the go-ahead, Harold quickly becomes the target of local drug lords and a morally conflicted black-ops mercenary (Sharlto Copley). Crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal, Harold battles to survive his increasingly dangerous situation in ways that raise the question: Is he out of his depth – or two steps ahead?
