Trailer For Soderbergh’s Pharmacothriller SIDE EFFECTS

Do you take pills? Will they make you kill someone?

I like the trailer for Side Effects; it's well-constructed, gives me a sense of the plot of the movie, lets me see the actors doing their actory things and also makes me think there may yet be un-hinted at twists coming my way. That's a good trailer!

Stupid thought: will mental health advocates/paid drug industry shills begin getting in an uproar about this film? With so many Americans medicated - over-medicated, some might say - Side Effects seems to be a timely sort of thriller, but it's also basing itself on something we don't like talking about in this country.
