In an effort to pay homage to the work of health teachers everywhere, Steven Soderbergh's final cinematic bow comes with a pretty powerful anti-drug message. Interestingly, the substances on trial in his final feature film, Side Effects, are actually perfectly legal... it's just the sort of behavior surrounding them that might land you a life sentence or two in the state pen.
Rooney Mara plays 28-year-old Emily Taylor, wife of an ex-con (Channing Tatum) and victim to the plagues of depression and anxiety. When Mara's character seeks the professional help of psychiatrist Dr. Banks (Jude Law), she lands herself and all parties associated with her in a 50 mg dose of trouble.
The below exclusive TV spot for Soderbergh's upcoming drama-thriller features the explosion of turmoil that embraces Mara, Law, Tatum, and psychiatrist Catherine Zeta-Jones as the experimental medication reaps undesirable results. Check out the video, and catch the film in theaters on Friday, Feb. 8.
