Based on filmmaker Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau's decade of experience working as a drug sales rep, Side Effects examines the pill-pushing tactics of the pharmaceutical industry's leading companies. Side Effects has conscientious consumers around the world thinking twice about popping their next pill.
For those who missed the storm of buzz during its rolling theatrical release, Side Effects is available online at http://www.sideeffectsthemovie.com and http://www.Amazon.com, and will be sold at major retail outlets across the United States beginning May 16.
Side Effects is an insider's glimpse at the shocking, and sometimes laughable realities of the drug industry. The film is fictional and meant to appeal to a large audience in a light and entertaining way, but with a message that packs a punch.
"Side Effects tackles these issues head-on and does it with remarkable candor, humor, and balance." - Tony Cecala, The Holistic Networker
"The film will serve as an eye opener for doctors and patients alike." - Stephanie Lysaught, The Yogi Times
"The action goes from amusing to savagely funny." - Jeanne Lenzer, British Medical Journal
"Drop dead fascinating." - Deborah Ray, Healthy Talk Radio
After being moved by the attention her first film was receiving for raising awareness about the pharmaceutical industry, Slattery-Moschkau went on to make Money Talks: Profits Before Patient Safety, a hard-hitting documentary that leaves Hollywood behind and explores the issues through interviews with key opinion leaders. The documentary is available online at the film's Website.
True to her position since the beginning, Slattery-Mosckau continues to take a reasoned approach to the issues surrounding the drug industry. "We need to acknowledge that we need prescription medications, but understand that the current system is broken--these are the first steps toward progress," says Slattery-Moschkau.
