It’s difficult to write a through review for this movie for fear of giving anything away. There are so many twists and turns in Side Effects that one wrong word or expression could give away an important detail.
That being said I will tell you it’s a great movie that will keep wondering till the last moment when everything comes together.
There’s a good bit of psychiatric and pharmacological jargon but I think the public has been so educated by television and the internet that we’re not left with any confusion over the dialog.
The acting and directing is spot on.
