Side Effects

by Giovanni Fazio

Director: Steven Soderbergh

Language: English

“Side Effects” is a psychological thriller worthy of Alfred Hitchcock, with Rooney Mara playing a troubled young woman whose husband (Channing Tatum) has just finished prison time for insider trading. He’s eager to put their lives back on the fast track, but she’s depressed and suicidal. A concerned psychiatrist (Jude Law) puts her on some new meds, one of which causes blackouts, during which something very bad happens. This opens up multiple layers of lies, deception and betrayal.
