Coinciding with its US release, a new trailer has arrived online for the upcoming crime thriller The Adderall Diaries. Based on the true-crime memoir of the same name by Stephen Elliott, the film stars James Franco, Ed Harris and Amber Heard. Check it out below after the official synopsis…
Stephen Elliott (James Franco) is enjoying a moment of fame and notoriety after publishing a celebrated memoir charting his difficult childhood at the mercy of a brutalising father (Ed Harris). Going from busy book signings to sold-out talk-sessions he is riding the crest of a wave that has hitherto been so uncharacteristic of his life’s journey so far.
But what goes up must come down and when his estranged father resurfaces in his life, claiming that Stephen fabricated much of the dark childhood that that fuelled his best-selling book, it comes down with a crash. Adrift in the precarious grey area of memory, prescription medication and an onset of serious writers-block Stephen is guided by a new romance with the beautiful and enigmatic Lana (Amber Heard) and the chance to write about an infamous murder trial that reminds him more than a little of his own story.
The Adderall Diaries is set for release on March 10th in the States and on April 22nd in the UK and features a cast that also includes Christian Slater, Wilmer Valderrama and Cynthia Nixon.
