Jimmy Fallon: Jude Law Side Effects Review

Jude Law’s newest movie, Side Effects, centers on Rooney Mara’s character, the wife of Channing Tatum’s character, who was just released from prison after four years because of insider trading. When Mara tries to commit suicide, her psychiatrist, played  by Law, prescribes her a new drug on the market. After a few side effects that are normal, Mara’s character becomes unstable and a slew of lies are found out by Law.

The film has gone on to receive mostly positive reviews from critics and opened in the number three spot in the box office, earning $10 million in the first weekend. Roger Ebert even gave the movie three and a half stars out of four.

Jimmy Fallon: Jude Law Didn’t Plan On Film Career

Jude Law, who grew up in Lewisham, England, told The Guardian he was never sure about making it in the film world. He knew he could work in theater and build a career there, but he said he never even thought about the movies because no one from Lewisham or around there was making it in films.

It wasn’t until he saw Daniel Day-Lewis in My Beautiful Laundrette that he knew he could make it in the film business. He said seeing Daniel Day-Lewis acting in the film inspired him to try his hand at the movie business. And it paid off. By the time he was 30, Law had already acted in two Oscar-nominated films, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain.

Law also told The Guardian he is also looking to take his career in a new direction now that he is turning 40. ”I am optimistic about my 40s,” Law said. “The roles should get more complex. I look back and I’m proud of the work I’ve done but not fulfilled by it. I feel in some areas I’ve only scratched the surface.”
