Time Out says

The Bitter Pill is a psychological thriller from director Steven Soderbergh. Moving away from the more light hearted content of Soderbergh’s last film ‘Magic Mike’, ‘The Bitter Pill’ follows a woman as she turns to prescription medication after hearing of her husband’s imminent release from prison. This is supposedly one of the last films Soderbergh is taking on before he retires, and sees him collaborating for a third time with Catherine Zeta-Jones, who plays a doctor.  The script comes from Scott Z. Burns who has a good track record with thrillers, having previously written ‘Contagion’ and ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’.
