Provocative director Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming film “Side Effects” will aim to thrill audiences when it comes to theaters February 8, 2013. The film, starring Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Catherine Zeta-Jones, will probably make you think twice about prescription drugs and their side effects. The film is written by Scott Z. Burns, who also wrote “Contagion,” “The Bourne Ultimatum” and the upcoming “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”
Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.”
This is actually my first time hearing about this film–which may or may not be a bad thing, since I write about films for a living–but from what I’ve seen, it looks intriguing. It might be something that could lift the usually dire movie time that is February.
