JUSTICE MATTERS

150 Milligrams

La Fille de Brest

EMMANUELLE BERCOT
France, 2016
128 minutes, Color
Official website

Acclaimed director, screenwriter, and actor Emmanuelle Bercot adapts Irène Frachon's bestselling memoir Médiator 150mg for this story of a dedicated doctor whose investigation into recent patient deaths leads to a crusade against a powerful drug company. 150 Milligrams is set in Brittany and revolves around Irène (Sidse Babett Knudsen), a hospital lung specialist who begins to suspect a connection between recent patient deaths and medications being prescribed. After she turns to the hospital's head of research, Antoine (Benoît Magimel), for help, Irène's investigation leads her to a powerful drug company. Of course, that's when things start to get ugly. Antoine's research unit is suddenly threatened with funding cuts, and Irène's colleagues begin to view her derisively as a meddlesome crusader. As this eye-opening and inspiring work illustrates, Frachon simply never gave up, until—well, see the film to find out what happened.—Toronto International Film Festival

In French with English subtitles
