Side effects of a quick fix

“We live in a world where everybody wants a quick fix for their problems,” said Dr. Sasha Bardey, a psychiatrist who is a  co-producer of “Side Effects.” an upcoming film staring  Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones. This new thriller, due out Feb 8, mixes murder and psychiatric medicine and you can read about it in the New York Times here.

It interests me because this is a combination I explored in the novel y1.  The shape-altering young hero of my book finds himself entangled in a murder devised to hide some of the unsavory secrets of a unscrupulous fictitious pharmaceutical company. Director Steven Soderbergh, on the other hand, will be telling the tale of murder committed as a side effect of prescription drugs intended to treat depression.

Check out the trailer for the movie here.
