Rooney Mara stars as Emily Taylor; her husband Martin (Channing Tatum) is a young businessman who, as the film opens, is soon to be released from prison after serving a few years for financial fraud. Overcome with stress, the mentally fragile Emily performs a quasi-suicide attempt and is put in the care of Dr. Jonathan Banks (Jude Law), a workaholic psychiatrist who convinces Emily to see him once a week for therapy. Jonathan is intrigued enough by Emily's story to seek counsel from her former therapist, Dr. Victoria Siebert (Catherine Zeta-Jones). One night Emily commits a horrific act that she claims not to remember because she was taking the medication prescribed to her by Jonathan, leading to a very public legal battle that leads to Jonathan taking a major public blow to his reputation. This turn of events prompts the chastened doctor to look deeper into Emily's past. Directed by Steven Soderbergh from a script by his regular collaborator Scott Z. Burns. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
Steven Soderbegh is one of the best and most versatile Directors out there. A crafty movie that evolves into another movie and I LOVED BOTH of them!!! What a thriller, that the actors take Us on an electric cracking thrill ride.
Been a long time since I have seen such a great movie like this with such a captivating suspenseful storyline. It really had my head spinning. In a good way:) Compare it to some of the great movies as Primal Fear and Time To Kill. Great Movie!!! Great Acting!! Just disappointed my boy Channing Tatum had to die:(
