Plagued by emotional and mental troubles, Emily (Rooney Mara) faces uncontrollable anxiety regarding her husband, Martin's (Channing Tatum) upcoming release from prison. Turning to her psychiatrist (Jude Law) for help, she is prescribed a mysterious new drug which is intended to treat anxiety and seems to work wonders...at first.
Unfortunately, the pills she takes begin causing serious, unexpected side effects that cause trouble for those around her, especially when a murder is committed.
I had high hopes going into this movie. I thought it would be incredible because it has the same girl from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but I was disappointed. It's very slow moving, and the dramatic ending wasn't that great. Go see Silver Linings Playbook, way better, or rent The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (not for kids).
Excellent movie! Not your typical Hollywood money grab, worth the money!
