Filmfest DC - 150 Milligrams

Run Time: 128 Minutes

JUSTICE MATTERS

150 Milligrams
Emmanuelle Bercot
France, 2016, 128 minutes 

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
