Side Effects (Blu-ray release 2013-5-21) has an original idea for a story about the potentially serious side effects of medications, especially anti-depressants.  It starts out slow, but becomes more interesting after using one third of the screen time to set things up.  Given the generally favorable reviews of this movie, perhaps I’m in the minority who don’t think the twist is really reasonable.  However, I recognize that this is still a smart story, and I like how it ends.
