Love & Other Drugs (2010)

IMDb 6.7

“Love & Other Drugs” is a 2010 romantic comedy-drama film directed by Edward Zwick and starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway. The movie is based on the book “Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman” by Jamie Reidy.

The film tells the story of Jamie Randall (Jake Gyllenhaal), a charming but somewhat aimless pharmaceutical salesman who falls in love with Maggie Murdock (Anne Hathaway), an artist with early-onset Parkinson’s disease. Despite initial reservations, the two become involved in a passionate, but complicated, relationship as Jamie struggles to balance his career with his growing feelings for Maggie.

As Maggie’s condition worsens, Jamie becomes increasingly involved in her life, eventually quitting his job and devoting himself entirely to her care. Along the way, the couple confronts the challenges of living with a chronic illness and the societal stigma surrounding it.

The film was praised for its performances by Gyllenhaal and Hathaway, as well as its frank portrayal of the challenges faced by people with Parkinson’s disease. However, it also received some criticism for its use of sex and nudity as a plot device, as well as its depiction of the pharmaceutical industry.

“Love & Other Drugs” is a moving and thought-provoking film that explores the complexities of love, illness, and the human condition.

Duration: 112 min.
