Description Emily Taylor, despite being reunited with her husband from prison, becomes severely depressed with emotional episodes and suicide attempts. Her psychiatrist, Jonathan Banks, after conferring with her previous doctor, eventually prescribes an experimental new medication called Ablixa. The plot thickens when the side effects of the drug lead to Emily killing her husband in a "sleepwalking" state. With Emily plea-bargained into mental hospital confinement and Dr. Banks' practice crumbling around him, the case seems closed. However, Dr. Banks cannot accept full responsibility and investigates to clear his name. What follows is a dark quest that threatens to tear what's left of his life apart even as he discovers the diabolical truth of this tragedy.

    As the movie begins with bloods all over the places and footsteps covered with blood and then goes in flashback; what does it imply? Did that mean Emilie committed suicide or something? I didn't get that. Overall the movie was very good.

    I just saw this movie an hour ago and had to read the comments below on what people think of this movie...I was prescribed Sertraline 50 mg (Zoloft) by my doctor because I told her I was alone all the time, dont have any friends (in which I dont) and smoked a lot of pot to cope with the loneliness but it didnt seem to help me anymore. I took one pill of that shit and I hated it. I almost felt like I was stuck in a box. I couldnt feel any emotion what so ever. It made me feel nausious. So i never took it again...Now, My pot dealer got ahold of some Xanax which I never tried before so I decided to buy one for 5$. White 2mg Bar with the word X|ANA|X on the front and a 2 on the back. I fell in love with them the first time I took it. It was the greatest high I've ever felt...Now i'm addicted to it and i'm taking 6-12 mgs a day. My dealer decided to hook me up 50 bars for 100$...To keep this comment short, Don't take any prescription pills unless you're in a life threating situation. It's not worth it!

    Psychiatrists are dregs of society. Pure scum. They believe they can read peoples minds without proving a single mental illness as they call it and providing 1 single cure. How fucked up is that?.

    Can't Emily's fate be argued as cruel and unusual punishment since she's conscious and healthy and being forced to take pills her body doesn't need in a mental hospital? Since she can't go to jail

    I enjoyed this movie. It keeps you guessing and wondering right up to the end. Lots of twists and turns.

  • Nτινος Σταματιου 2015-10-27 02:06:17
    Anyone remember an older film I think starring Law or Ryan Phillipe, with a split personality theme and a scene where he calls his girlfriend with a different name than her real one at some point? It's stuck in my head and I can't find any info...
