Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish, and Robert De Niro star in this 2011 techno thriller based on the novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn. The main character is a struggling writer by the name of Eddie Morra (Cooper). At a low point in his life both personally and professionally, he decides to try an experimental drug that allows him to use 100 percent of his mind. As a result he becomes a so-called perfect version of himself, and his success eventually catches the eye of business mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro). Though it seems like Eddie has the world at his fingertips, he's about to learn that he's not completely in control.
