This movie is full of twists and turns. It plays out like a murder thriller, but it's so much more than that. There's a great deal of attention placed on the drug industry and the pills they push knowing that there are deadly side effects. However, there are several layers at play. Is someone trying to exploit those weaknesses in the drug industry to get away with murder? There are subtle hints throughout and plenty of shocking revelations. Jude Law is terrific, but Channing Tatum has a minor role and is only in the first quarter of the film.

I was pleasantly surprised because i had no expectations- definitely not your average storyline, so thumbs up to the screen writer. However easy spoiler alert, so if u are interested in seeing it DO NOT read further into my comments. Great casting though btw.
It was funny how they took the idea of the flaw of the psychiatry/medical system and made a thriller out of it. It's funny how common it is how patients lie to doctors so that they would be diagnosed the way the patient wants.

If I had read the reviews before we went to the show I probably wouldn't have gone. My husband and i both thought the first half was boring but OMG when I finally figuered out the plot, several times actually gasping, I thought the show was actually good.Katherine Zeta Jones played a different role than I've ever seen her play before. Jude Law was fantastic and Channing Tatum looked good and his wife had a great role.
Depression is a horrible sickness and at first I thought I don't want to see this but I really did enjoy the final outcome and glad we went.
