Talk surrounding Anne Hathaway’s chances at securing an Oscar nomination for her performance as Maggie, a woman with Parkinson’s, has been swarming for quite a while now as the trailer for Love and Other Drugs with Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai) has just arrived.
Charles Randolph (The Interpreter) adapted the script from Jamie Reidy’s nonfiction book “Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman,” which centers on Reidy (Gyllenhaal), a drug rep for Pfizer in the late 1990s who eventually wrote a memoir that shined a light on the practices of the pharmaceutical industry. Reidy begins a relationship with Maggie while on one of his sales calls. Their love story plays out in the political and social context of the time. Oliver Platt, Hank Azaria, Josh Gad and Gabriel Macht co-star
I’ve added the trailer directly below and 20th Century Fox will release it in theaters on November 24.
