Sorta mediocre

I guess I’m rightfully annoyed at this one as it promised two different sorts of things, but delivered something different entirely.  At the risk of giving away the big twist, the genre flipping is the central problem with this movie.

Unfortunately Rooney Mara starts off giving a very identifiable performance as a mentally disturbed woman in need of help.  She then meets up with Jude Law, who wants sincerely to help her, but the tools in his toolbox are of course the anti-depressant drugs given away thorughout the society like candy.  I was very on-board this first half of the film, and I genuinely believed they were going somewhere.
