Last night I saw Cocaine Godmother starring the gorgeous
Catherine Zeta-Jones which was essentially made as a movie to
be premiered on TV Based on the true life story of the black widow
better known as La Motherina of the Miami drug cartel, the movie
is an account starting from her childhood till the very end.
What to say about the movie and what to say about the role? The actual La Motherina, Griselda Blanco, was a
legendry drug warlord who dominated the Miami drug cartel from the 80s to the 2000s and was so ruthless that
fear of her brutality was famed even amongst the fierce Columbian underworld gangsters of her time!
Her life which saw the end of three of her four sons
and three husbands is what the movie has
endeavored to portray. The genius of Zeta-Jones
portrayal lies in her honesty. She hasn’t tried to
judge her character by portraying her as a victim of
her circumstances or as a monster either.
She has played out the entire movie with a grit that
leaves you to form your own opinion.
For avid movie goers this is a must watch. I’ve notched it up as one of the best I’ve ever seen.
