El Cantante

El Cantante

Based on the true story of the King of Salsa, Hector Lavoe.
  • Thank goodness it wasn't as bad as Gigli...

JLo and new husband Marc Anthony avoid the Gigli curse to a degree with this biopic about the inventor of the 'salsa' style of latin music. A talented young singer moves to New York from Puerto Rico, where he soon attracts the right kind of attention to kick-start his career. He also attracts a pretty young woman, who makes the mistake of introducing him to drugs. This seduction move backfires as he is soon addicted, and even though they stay together as personal and business partners for over twenty years, the drugs lead to much unhappiness.
