2013
Emily copes with her depression by taking antidepressant medication. But when her dire state apparently spirals out of control due to her husband's prison release, she turns to a new medication that alters her life forever.

Samir Mehta: “It ruled.”

Wow. Another Soderbergh masterpiece. Soderbergh and Ang Lee are secretly laying claim as the best non-Spielberg American directors going today. Soderbergh wins in his typical way - he mixes rich characterization and thoughtful social criticism with a freaking amazing potboiler of a plot. Just fantastic work, Rooney Mara is better than she was in the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and I didn't hate Channing Tatum. Jude Law is terrific as is Catherine Zeta Jones. Must see.
