Drugs and depression. Steven Soderbergh takes both head-on.
Emily Taylor’s life is on the brink of total collapse
after waiting for four years for her husband to get out of prison. Then she encounters Doctor Jonathan Banks.
He tries his best to help her. There is copious drug use. Emily’s condition begins to improve, but then tragedy strikes, and it threatens to bring them down.
The viewer envies the characters and their glamorous lives, even more so as they destroy themselves. The viewer needs to remind themself that these characters do not exist, and this is a fiction. In the end it is not drug use that is being criticized, but rather the avaricious soul-sucking void, the characters' needs to engulf their surroundings, and the sociopathic culture that made them this way

If you can put the plausibility factor setting at mid point you will probably enjoy this yarn with Jude Law carrying the weight of this story. There are several gaps in the storyline that stretch things thin. A few surprises do ensue and you are caught by some that are credible but thinly so..
On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being out of this world I'd give it a 6.4.

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.

I read the movie reviews before I went to the theater, a secondary and cheap theater, only costing 1.5 dollar, haha. A deal for such an excellent movie. Overall the movie exceeded my expectation. I was late for the picture for half an hour. The movie is thought-provoking. I wish I was not late, and wanting to wait for the next round in this cheap theater.
Jude Law is amazing in his role. Channing Tatum was impressive although his role is short. Catherine Zeta-Jones played masterfully. The whole story is thought provoking, and made me to watch it again.
A memorable movie to go.
