The psychological Hollywood thriller ‘Side Effects’, boasting of names like Channing Tatum, Rooney Mara, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones, has got a new international trailer and it gives a lot more insight into the plot than the previous ones. Watch the new trailer below.
No one talks about therapy in London, Jude Law says.
“As an Englishman, if you say you’re visiting a psychiatrist, you have a problem,” noted the British actor. “In the States, you’re looking for an answer.”
Law, then, isn’t the traditional Brit, because when director Steven Soderbergh asked him to play a shrink in his new film “Side Effects,” the actor didn’t hesitate. The two had worked together before — on 2011’s outbreak thriller “Contagion” — but in that project, Law was a supporting member of a large ensemble cast. This time the 40-year-old was eager to team with Soderbergh for a weightier role and was equally interested in challenging the attitudes toward mental health so prevalent in the United Kingdom.
In “Side Effects,” out Feb. 8, Law plays Dr. Jonathan Banks, a prominent psychiatrist trying to help Emily (Rooney Mara), a young woman struggling with deep depression. Banks prescribes a number of antidepressants, but every medication Emily tries presents a challenging batch of side effects.
To prepare for the role, Law spent time with Sasha Bardey, formerly the deputy director of forensic psychiatry for the city of New York, and a U.K.-based psychiatrist. In London, Law also got permission to attend some group therapy sessions — an experience he found both eye-opening and disturbing.
The Berlin International Film Festival (February 7-17) has added nine more titles to its competition lineup, including Steven Soderbergh’s psychological thriller “Side Effects,” starring Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Jude Law. The Berlinale is the first major European film festival of the year. Last year the Golden Bear went to Italy’s veteran film-makers Paolo and Vittorio Taviani for Caesar Must Die, a docu-drama about inmates at a high-security prison staging Shakespeare.
