Rooney Mara does an outstanding job as the main character. The story builds and keeps you guessing as you see Jude Law's life crumble after events that he could never have predicted.
The plot twists and turns and overall it was excellent. I would definitely recommend.

The professional critics who likened this to Hitchcock's psychological thrillers were obviously on crack. It has a great cast, and the story is good, but the movie suffers from a general lack of tension. I figured out quite early what was really going on, and from there on, and ... ho, hum. There was no sense of menace or danger or even empathy as Jude Law slipped into obsession and watched his life escaping from him.
This movie had great potential and could have been so much more than it was.

...with an extremely smart and sexy thriller.
All the players are perfectly cast, the performances spot on and the plot secrets revealed with great skill.
I want to see it again to catch what I missed the first time.

I love movies where you expect something and find that the plot takes a dramtic turn. The events, as they unfold, will grab your attention and no let go until it ends. It's a story of how some depend on drugs to make them happy, how greed can keep the best treatment from happening, and how some can use deceit to get what they want. But be careful, the bad guys are not who you expect....

Plot twists I never saw coming! Very unlike the predictability of most Hollywood movies. So well done and riveting! Very intriguing story line. I can't recommend it enough.
