“LIMITLESS” PRESS PREVIEW
And so this story goes:
A down-and-out writer Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) is in a deep fix.
He’s at dead end, suffering from chronic “writer’s block” which is overpowering him, taking his depressive moods to the next level.
Then he accidentally stumbles upon a ray of hope.
It’s in the form of NZT, a wonder pill.
It’s a revolutionary new drug that can lay claim to enhance one’s senses and wit.
The vital question is: to take or not to take?
He succumbs to being a guinea pig, as he has nothing to lose.
Upon consuming the drug, he develops exhilarated feelings of inner euphoria.
All traces of the stubborn “writer’s block” completely disappear.
His creative juices seep through naturally in his mind.
Flow of ideas, words and content that were hard to come by, now bounce up and down in a continuous steady stream, non-stop.
NZT makes Eddie a genius — as long as he keeps taking it.
After stealing a supply, Eddie believes he’s got it made and for a while, he does. He finishes his book, works for a Wall Street superstar Carl Van Loon (Robert De Niro), and lures his ex-girl friend back.
He is hailed as the latest literary genius, financial whiz and a lady-killer.
