STARRING Bradley Cooper, Anna Friel, and Abbie Cornish
DIRECTED BY Neil Burger

A sort of Flowers for Algernon for the 21st century, Limitless follows an unemployed loser (Bradley Cooper) who suddenly becomes brilliant and rich thanks to a mysterious experimental drug. Of course, a story about a man having everything would be no fun — so before long, Cooper’s character finds himself the target of a group of hitmen who want to use the drug for themselves. Abbie Cornish and Robert De Niro round out the cast as Cooper’s girlfriend and a business mogul named Carl Van Loon.
