An unwilling conscript in the First Carlist War, Martín returns to his family's farmhouse to find that his younger brother Joaquín has become a giant.

Joaquín measures himself each night and is horrified that he continues to grow, well into adulthood, suspecting that the condition is terminal. For a time Martín believes he is at home with sophisticated medical doctors interested in understanding his brother's condition, yet his background and Basque accent betray him, they laugh at him as a mere farmhand or peasant.
Embittered, he travels abroad. In one scene, the brothers visit Stonehenge, where in a surreal, early morning ritual, Joaquín is introduced to a potential female love interest, a giant, she seems interested, but Joaquín is too self-conscious and possessing a self awareness Martin lacks, in the end repulsed by someone of a similar condition.

Javier Bardem as Pablo Escobar Penélope Cruz as Virginia Vallejo Peter Sarsgaard as Shepard Julieth Restrepo as Maria Victoria Henao David Valencia as Santos David Ojalvo as FBI Agent Giselle Da Silva as Olguita Arranz On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 30% based on 46 reviews, with a weighted average rating of 4.7/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Loving Pablo bungles its cinematic real-life story -- and a pair of talented stars -- in producing a lurid biopic that adds nothing to the Escobar subgenre."
On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 41 out of 100, based on 5 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews". In a mixed review, Stanley Widianto, writing for The Jakarta Post, calls the film "a rinse-and-repeat of the tales of the late notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar" that relies on its thriller components. Widianto notes that the film suffers from scattered storytelling and succeeds at adding complexity to the story of Escobar. Official website Loving Pablo on IMDb Loving Pablo at Rotten Tomatoes
