Sam Rockwell seems to fly under the radar even though the actor consistently churns out solid work and is usually the best aspect of any movie he’s in (i.e. The Way Way Back). It’s doubtful that the new comedy Better Living Through Chemistry will be the one to propel him to A-list movie stardom (especially if Iron Man 2 couldn’t do it), but with his presence it should be worth checking out nonetheless.
Here’s the trailer:
A straight-laced pharmacist’s uneventful life spirals out of control when he starts an affair with a trophy wife customer who takes him on a joyride involving sex, drugs and possibly murder.
The film comes from first time writer/directors Geoff Moore and David Posamentier. In addition to Rockwell, the movie also stars Olivia Wilde, Michelle Monaghan, Jane Fonda, Ben Schwartz and Ray Liotta. Better Living Through Chemistry is set for a limited theatrical release on March 14th, 2014.
On a side note, if you’d like to inundate yourself with one of the most underrated actors working today, do yourself a favor and rent: Seven Psychopaths, Moon, The Sitter, Choke and Safe Men, just to name a few.
