Every time the research team is using a computer, it's running Windows 7, which was released in late 2009. The hospital could have been using pre-release software, but this is highly unlikely for medical facilities, used to very slow upgrade and rollout plans. During the 2009-2010 timeframe, they were probably still all using Windows XP. See more »
This movie shows what we have to face nowadays as we follow our own conscience and deep feelings of right against wrong. It is very well played by an actress that is playing over-the-top, but hits the nail with it perfectly. If you go into battle with pharmaceutic industry you will get kind of HYPER, and all kind of doors will literally seem to close or bother your way in or out. The movie is based on a real life story, and that's the only way one can tell such a story, because if it was made-up it could not have worked for this purpose. The movie very suitable for waking up the insomnia that has taken many of us, who are sitting in the waiting rooms of life, because doctors kept them drugged. I did get a lot of energy from the movie, which one cannot say about movies like 'Elle'or "Brimstone' that make women avengers of a way as in the Israelian army. Not interesting story lines for me. So I rated this movie very high, because of integrity and way the story line kept me into it.
