– LIMITLESS directed by Neil Burger
starring Bradley Cooper and Robert de Niro
Aspiring author Eddie Morra (Cooper) is suffering from chronic writer’s block, but his life changes instantly when an old friend introduces him to NZT, a revolutionary new pharmaceutical that allows him to tap his full potential. Soon Eddie takes Wall Street by storm, parlaying a small stake into millions. His accomplishments catch the eye of mega-mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro),who invites him to help broker the largest merger in corporate history. But they also bring Eddie to the attention of people willing to do anything to get their hands on his stash of NZT.
The use of the NZT pill entails a kind of schyzophrenia effect, however instead of turning into a creepy personnality, the character will get the best of himself at least for a while, but there is always a price to be paid with drugs.
