Could this moody, pulpy thriller about a depressed woman (Rooney Mara) and her possibly murder-inducing anxiety medication be the last feature Steven Soderbergh ever directs? Possibly – which is why it’s fitting that Side Effects, formerly known as Bitter Pill, functions sort of like a reunion film for Soderbergh vets. Look, it’s Contagion’s Jude Law, Traffic’s Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Channing Tatum – a.k.a. Magic Mike himself! (Bonus points: Tatum also starred in Soderbergh’s Haywire.) Too bad it seems like things aren’t going so well for any of their characters this time around.
