This film builds slowly, at first leading the audience to question its point, in addition to its plot. Turns out, that is the point, precisely. Skillfully, methodically, the writer steadily brings focus to what becomes one of the smartest plays on screen for some time. While this movie may not appeal to those with short attention spans or ones who must have constant stimulation, the rest should be pleasantly entertained. Adults only of course. This screenplay is absolutely masterful and well worth experiencing. Both Zeta-Jones and Mara execute their roles with precision and near perfection. Jude Law provides a balanced believability to this plot as well. The one deficit, if it can be called that, is that Tatum wasn’t given enough with which to work. However, with each new film he grows as an actor. It seems at long last he learning his chops. At the current rate, his will be a commanding presence on the screen during middle age. See this film. You won’t be disappointed.

...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.

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.

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.
