Critics Consensus: Loving Pablo bungles its seemingly cinematic real-life story -- and a pair of talented stars -- in producing a lurid biopic that adds nothing to the Escobar subgenre.

Brutal violence, strong language in Escobar biopic.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Loving Pablo is an intense, mature drama based on journalist Virginia Vallejo's (Penélope Cruz) memoir about her years in a relationship with married drug lord Pablo Escobar (Javier Bardem), who co-founded the infamous Medellín Cartel. It's full of extremely brutal violence, including shootings, assassinations, graphic torture/murders, the savage beating of a dog, and an explicit description of a horrifying gang rape. Language is also very strong, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," "son of a bitch," and more. There's rear male and female nudity, as well as partial nudity involving an apparently underage girl who's in a relationship with Escobar. Not surprisingly, drugs are shown and discussed frequently. Peter Sarsgaard co-stars.
