Recently, a new word-of-mouth work was finally born. This American drama is called “Dopesick”.
“Dopesick” starred by Michael Keaton, Peter Sarsgaard, Will Poulter, John Hoogenakker, Kaitlyn Dever, Rosario Dawson, Michael Stuhlbarg, etc.
The cast is luxurious, and all of them are powerful.
This is a powerful new drama, based on the American sensational Oxycontin incident.
“Dopesick” brought this terrifying scandal in the medical industry to the screen.
On the IMDb platform, the first episode of “Dopesick” scored 8.6 points, while the fourth episode scored 9.4 points, which is an excellent reputation.
“Dopesick” uses a multi-line narrative approach to tell stories.
The episode focuses on the key personnel of the Oxycontin incident, expands the story into multiple timelines, and frequently switches timelines.
But the content it presents is not messy, but it adds to the fun of chasing the drama.
This makes the storyline more suspenseful and attractive.
Oxycontin is a painkiller, and Purdue Pharma deliberately conceals the addiction and fatal risk of this drug.
And, in the promotion process, it was emphasized that Oxycontin will not be addictive.
This has led to the abuse of this drug in the United States.
After more than ten years of investigations, Purdue Pharma was issued a astronomical fine by the US Department of Justice, which was as high as 8.3 billion U.S. dollars.
According to incomplete statistics, 450,000 people died from the abuse of this drug, and the number of victims could not be counted.
It was revealed in the play that even students would buy Oxycontin through channels.
In the play “Dopesick”, it focuses on the history of Purdue Pharma.
When it was on the verge of bankruptcy, Purdue Pharma launched Oxycontin and exhausted all means to promote it. This is the main story line.
On the other hand, a group of righteous men investigated Purdue Pharma, collected evidence, and revealed the Purdue Pharma scandal to the public.
“Dopesick” is an excellent work with profound connotation and strong accusation power, but unfortunately it is relatively unpopular.
This new work is a new October drama not to be missed.
