US PREMIERE The French painter Jean Marc Calvet recounts his incredible life story as a former Cannes bodyguard who abandoned his family, robbed a Miami mobster, hid out in Central America and overcame addictions by teaching himself how to paint at age 38. That was seven years ago. Now his intricate paintings sell for five figures, but he remains desperate to reconcile with the son he left behind.
