Steven Soderbergh has said this will be his last theatrical feature before he retires (the Liberarace TV movie Behind The Candelabra is still to come). Whether he really down leave cinema behind is yet to be seen, after all, he’s been threatening to retire for year, but not the first trailer for Side Effects has arrived, which is another of his star-studded tales.
This one has Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and is about a woman (Mara) who turns to prescription medication to deal with her anxiety over her husband’s (Tatum) release from prison. She begins to take a new brand of anti-depressant, prescribed by a doctor (Jude Law), who seems to have more than a professional interest in her. Before long, everything spirals badly out of control, when it appears a murder has been committed. Watch the trailer after the jump.
The film is set for release in the UK on March 15th, 2013. It certainly looks like it’ll be a dramatic one.
