Money makes the world go around, so does pharma. In Netflix‘s upcoming dark comedy Pain Hustlers, moral dilemmas are tested. Are they legal? Watch first Trailer!
How far will people will go? That question will be put to test. Emily Blunt and Chris Evans headline this one, will they be ‘helping others’ or just a ‘little’ extra cash in the pocket?
Blunt plays blue collar worker who dreams of a better life for her and her young daughter. She loses her current job only to quickly land a new one at a failing pharma start-up with Pete (Evans). Pushing her charm, drive, and guts to catapult herself into the high life. However that company is also the centre of a criminal conspiracy with dire consequences.
Thing Big Short, The Wolf Of Wall Street to name a few influenced this one looks to have…
Liza Drake (Emily Blunt) is a blue-collar single mom who has just lost her job and is at the end of her rope. A chance meeting with pharmaceutical sales rep Pete Brenner (Chris Evans) puts her on an upwards trajectory economically but dubious path ethically as she becomes entangled in a dangerous racketeering scheme. Dealing with her increasingly unhinged boss (Andy Garcia), the worsening medical condition of her daughter (Chloe Coleman), and a growing awareness of the devastation the company is causing forces Liza to examine her choices. Pain Hustlers is a sharp and revealing look at what some people do out of desperation and others do out of greed. The film is directed by BAFTA award winner David Yates, produced by Lawrence Grey, and also starring Catherine O’Hara, Jay Duplass and Brian d’Arcy James.
The film also stars Catherine O’Hara, Chloe Coleman, Jay Duplass, Brian d’Arcy James, Amit Shah, Aubrey Dollar, Willie Raysor and Andy Garcia. Pain Hustlers launches on Netflix on 27th October.
