LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2006 –-
Causing a stir across the nation, sold-out audiences have flocked to see the eye-opening indie film that the pharmaceutical industry wishes would go away. Side Effects, which has been heralded as a light and entertaining approach to a heavy issue, is an insider’s look at the drug industry and stars Katherine Heigl, sexy intern on ABC’s award-winning drama, “Grey’s Anatomy.”
For those who can’t get enough of the rising young star, Side Effects will be released to DVD May 16 at major retail outlets across the United States and online at http://www.sideeffectsthemovie.com and http://www.Amazon.com.
In Side Effects, Heigl plays Karly Hert, a drug industry sales rep, battling with love, ethics and a discontented career pushing pills for big pharma.
“Katherine knocked our socks off. From day one she knew her character inside and out, and she nailed the role,” said writer/director Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau.
The film is making a tremendous impact because Slattery-Moschkau speaks from experience. Based on her decade of experience working as a drug sales rep, Side Effects examines the pill-pushing tactics of the pharmaceutical industry’s leading companies.
With Michael Moore’s expose of the drug industry out later this year, this timely prescription has success written all over it.
