In 1989, Steven Soderbergh transformed the independent ?lm business with the Sundance winner Sex, Lies and Videotape, since then he has followed a fascinating and intensely individual path. Increasingly proli?c in recent years, his ?lmography is ?lled with eclectic choices, alternating commercial productions (Out of Sight, Erin Brockovich, Traf?c, the Ocean’s Eleven movies) with digital experiments (Full Frontal, Bubble, The Girlfriend Experience, etc.) and adventurous independent fare (Kafka, King of the Hill, Schizopolis, The Limey, Che, etc.). A guest of the ?lm in 2010, we are delighted to include his new ?lm. Side Effects is a riveting, psychological thriller starring Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Catherine ZetaJones and Channing Tatum. When Emily Taylor (Mara) is faced with her husband’s release from prison for insider trading, she ?nds herself plagued with a clinical depression. Psychiatrist Jonathan Banks (Law) struggles to treat her; but when a new prescription drug has some unexpected side effects, both Emily and Banks ?nd themselves down dark paths they never could have foreseen.
