movie news: Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Side EffectsNo Comment
After tackling the effects of a pandemic in Contagion, screenwriter Scott Z Burns and director Steven Soderbergh have teamed up again for a different type of medical thriller in Side Effects.
Once a successful New York couple, Emily (Rooney Mara) and her husband (Channing Tatum) are now struggling to readjust to life after his recent release from prison.
Emily is plagued with a clinical depression and, following a car crash, is referred to respected psychiatrist Dr Jonathan Banks (Jude Law) who offers the latest in prescription drugs to try and alleviate her anxiety. However as Emily’s relationship with both Dr Banks and her prescribed medication intensifies, she finds herself descending into a chemical-fuelled nightmare where the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred.
