Side Effects is a provocative thriller about Emily and Martin (Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum), a successful New York couple whose world unravels when a new drug prescribed by Emily’s psychiatrist (Jude Law) – intended to treat anxiety – has unexpected side effects.
R, 106 min.
Director: Steven Soderbergh
Writer: Scott Z. Burns
Cast: Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones
Seriously twisted and gut-wrenchingly suspenseful, “Side Effects” is a tremendously well-made psychological thriller. The always-entertaining Jude Law is terrific as a psychologist whose life it upended after prescribing an experimental anti-depressant to his new patient, Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
Things keep getting more and more twisted as the plot rolls on and what happens in the third act is truly shocking. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Channing Tatum have great supporting roles.
This is one of the best psychological thrillers to come out so far this year.
