Acclaimed director, screenwriter, and actor Emmanuelle Bercot has emerged over the past decade as one of Europe's foremost talents. 150 Milligrams is an angry piece of filmmaking designed to draw attention to a serious issue and shake up a complacent system, it tells the true story of a woman's long fight to be taken seriously as she confronts the pharmaceutical industry.
Based on bestselling book “Médiator 150mg”, 150 Milligrams is set in Brittany — a key element of the film as there is a constant tension between Paris and the provinces — and revolves around Irène, 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, 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.
Frachon's story calls to mind that of another hard-charging activist: Erin Brockovich. But Bercot's distinct personality as a director ensures that this is new cinematic territory. In Knudsen, who appears in almost every scene in the film, she finds an actor fully up for the role of the steely heroine.
