In the Interrogation Series, Oliver Stone separately cross-examines the five principle characters from the film: Elena (Salma Hayek), the merciless queen of the Mexican Baja Cartel; Lado (Benicio Del Toro), her brutal enforcer; Chon (Taylor Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary; his best friend Ben (Aaron Johnson), a peaceful and charitable marijuana producer; and O (Blake Lively), Ben and Chon’s breathtaking muse.
This week, watch as the Savages tell Stone about their friends, enemies..and lovers.
Directed by Oliver Stone and written by Shane Salerno, Savages stars Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek.
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable marijuana producer, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry-raising some of the best weed ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively). 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 BC, Elena (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon–with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (Travolta)–wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high-stakes, savage battle of wills.
