I have not seen this movie and know nothing about it further than what is written below.
However, Kristen’s contact information was provided and you can use it to contact her and find out more. (see below)
Here is a resource on medical malpractice.
Though I haven’t seen the movie that Kristen talks about, I do know that there are many side effects to the drugs used today.
One only has to look at the list of side effects that usually comes with a new prescription to see just how many there are. ]

I wanted to let you know about Side Effects, an independent feature film produced by our company, Hummingbird Pictures. We have gotten a very enthusiastic response from the holistic community about the film. So we put together a grassroots campaign to get the word out about it. I felt the film might be of interest to you and your group.. Starring Katherine Heigl of Greyâ€™s Anatomy, Side Effects is a satirical, insiderâ€™s look at the questionable marketing practices of the pharmaceutical industry based on the writer/directorâ€™s ten years experience working as a pharmaceutical sales representative. View a trailer of the film and read reviews at our website: https://www.sideeffectsthemovie.com
A companion documentary, Money Talks: Profits Before Patient Safety, was created to give a more in-depth, academic perspective on the ethics of drug promotion, and features the commentary of key opinion leaders throughout the country. View a clip of the documentary on our website in the press section. https://www.sideeffectsthemovie.com/press/
Entertaining and educational, the films offer a reasoned approach to the subject matter and are a terrific way to stimulate discussion about the sales tactics of the pharmaceutical industry. Both Side Effects and Money Talks can be ordered directly from our website: https://www.sideeffectsthemovie.com/shop/or from Amazon at www.amazon.com There is also a screenplay available. We also offer an Affiliate Program for individuals and/or groups actively seeking to raise awareness about this issue. You choose a link (text or graphics, as prominent or as inconspicuous as you wish, for use on websites, e-mails, list servs, and blogs) from a selection on our site and receive 20% of any sale brought to our site through the link.(Wholesale rates are also available for those interested in stocking and reselling the film directly.)
