'Side Effects'

Again altering a genre with his unique cinematic sensibility, director Steven Soderbergh ("Traffic," "Ocean's Eleven") puts his spin on a medical thriller with the story of an emotionally fragile woman (Rooney Mara, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo") prescribed an experimental drug by a psychiatrist (Jude Law).

Her subsequent, shocking action has a far-reaching impact on all concerned, including her prison parolee husband (Channing Tatum). Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mamie Gummer and Vinessa Shaw also appear. DVD extras: "making-of"documentary; fake commercials. *** (R: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
