Pain Hustlers, Netflix

Chris Evans, Andy Garcia and Emily Blunt in Pain Hustlers on Netflix.

There is a lot of buzz surrounding the exposure and criticism of Big Pharma’s involvement in the opioid epidemic in the book “Painkiller, All the Beauty and the Bloodshed.” This new story, which claims to be based on true events, takes a bold approach by incorporating a “Wolf of Wall Street” style comedy of excess.

As the money starts pouring in, Liza begins to question the legality of the company’s operations, and Blunt delivers a powerful performance as her character shifts from partying to feeling remorseful.
