8/10 Put Side Effects on your must see list. Clever story, good acting, well done movie. Rated 7.2 on IMDB.
Hard to describe without giving anything away… here is IMDB’s synopsis: A young woman’s world unravels when a drug prescribed by her psychiatrist has unexpected side effects.
My wife also liked it and gave it 7+/10 – she wasn’t as thrilled with the ending as I was. She said it was a little confusing. Side Effects movie is a well written, directed and acted movie with many named movie stars – including Catherine Zeta-Jones who I haven’t seen for a while. Jude Law played the husband and the star of the movie was Rooney Mara (a name I wasn’t familiar with). Side Effects may not be a great film, but it stands out from all the other cookie cutter films I’ve seen lately. Watch it and let me know your opinion – rant or rave?
