One Pill Can Change Everybody's Lives
For me, Steven Soderbergh's movie means much. Erin Brockovich, Traffic, Ocean's 11-12-13 are some of his brilliant works. And I truly believe Side Effects is one of them with extraordinary story, a great cast and pure directing.
Emily Taylor (played by Rooney Mara) is young, a 28-year-old girl married to sexy but imprisoned Martin (played by Channing Tatum). It's been four years she waiting for husband's release and when finally he comes out, something changes - Emily gets depressed. Their relationship is just ruining day by day, the more time they spend together, the worse she feels - even her suicide attempts fail. Then she starts visiting Dr. Banks (played by Jude Law) whose decides that Mrs Taylor needs emergency psychiatric treatment. There is a moment when everybody thinks that nothing can go more wrong, but obviously they do not know the Side Effects of medicine, Emily receives daily.
