Superbad fans will get a kick seeing Jonah Hill and Emma Stone back together in Maniac premiering this September 21 on Netflix.
Annie Landsberg (Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Hill) are two strangers admitted into an experimental drug trial to cure their respective mental illnesses. The drug’s creator, Dr. Mantleray (played by Justin Theroux), promises to cure them through a series of treatments and substances. Suffice to say, things do not go exactly as they expect as Landsberg and Milgrim exhibit an unexpected connection with each other.
Maniac features visually stunning sets and wild sequences that take you on a head trip as it explores the characters’ minds and the secrets hidden within. Stone and Hill deliver powerful performances supported by Theroux and the inimitable Sally Field.
Catch this psychological thriller, directed by Cary Fukunaga and written by Patrick Somerville, next month.
