Better Living Through Chemistry


A small town pharmacist’s uneventful life is turned inside out when a chance encounter with a lonely trophy wife turns into a walk on the wild side in the murderously funny dark comedy, Better Living Through Chemistry. Doug Varney (Sam Rockwell) is the model of suburban respectability-until the night he delivers a prescription to the home of Elizabeth Roberts (Olivia Wilde). Gorgeous, seductive and multiply addicted, Elizabeth eagerly introduces Doug to extra-large martinis, uninhibited bedroom behavior and the illicit pleasures of the pharmacopeia he has access to in his store. Also starring Jane Fonda, Ray Liotta and Michelle Monaghan. (Dir. by Geoff Moore & David Posamentier, 2013, USA, 91 mins., Not Rated, Samuel Goldwyn Films) Digital
