Synopsis


Side Effects
Rooney Mara stars as Emily Taylor; her husband Martin (Channing Tatum) is a young businessman who, as the film opens, is soon to be released from prison after serving a few years for financial fraud. Overcome with stress, the mentally fragile Emily performs a quasi-suicide attempt and is put in the care of Dr. Jonathan Banks (Jude Law), a workaholic psychiatrist who convinces Emily to see him once a week for therapy. Jonathan is intrigued enough by Emily's story to seek counsel from her former therapist, Dr. Victoria Siebert (Catherine Zeta-Jones). One night Emily commits a horrific act that she claims not to remember because she was taking the medication prescribed to her by Jonathan, leading to a very public legal battle that leads to Jonathan taking a major public blow to his reputation. This turn of events prompts the chastened doctor to look deeper into Emily's past. Directed by Steven Soderbergh from a script by his regular collaborator Scott Z. Burns. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Side Effects is another fantastic film from Steven Soderbergh. It's no wonder he attracts such a master class of talent to every movie he makes because they are all powerful character and story-driven works. With a gripping story and great performances across the board (particularly from Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum), this is another fine film. Moreover, no one of his films is like the last and that's a real testament to his directorial skills. He claims he is going into retirement and that this is his last work - that would be truly sad for all of us because he will be sorely missed.

    They did an excellent job til the very end in what was going on. Never expected the wife to play crazy and to have a woman as her lover. Jude Law wife in the movie didn't like her character. She was a whiner. He is busy working hard trying to figuer this out and all she could do is think about herself. I truly enjoyed this movie.

    A film that delves deep into the world of mental illness and the various drugs that are used to treat it. An interesting look at the business behind pharmaceuticals and the fine lines the judicial system walks when it comes to mental illness. Interesting twist at the end of the story.

    Bought this because it was on sale, but hadn't seen it yet. Watched it on netflix and decided to return this. It's a good movie to watch once...good intrigue. Don't see ourselves watching it again. If you like the move, go ahead and get this because the actual product is as expected.

    This is an entertaining movie. It makes you think twice about the prescription your doctor or shrink suggests you take OR if you even need to take any at all. Of course, if you're like me, movies are purely for entertainment purposes only. GREAT movie.

    If this is Steven Soderbergh's swan song, he went out on a high note. While not as good as many of his previous films, Side Effects has great acting, directing, and plenty of twists. I really enjoyed this film and highly recommend it.

    This movie definitely wasn't what I expected. Just when you think you have the plot figured out, new twists are thrown in. It really makes you think about the ethical practices out in this field. Very interesting movie!

    I wasn't sure what this movie was about initially but it definitely spiked interest after the first death scene. There were several plot twists that were unexpected or just seemed unnatural. Good flick!
