FILM SYNOPSIS: Aspiring author Eddie Morra's life changes when an old friend introduces him to NZT, a new drug that lets him tap his full potential.

PREVIEW REVIEW: Limitless is an engrossing, creative, even insightful thriller. I was completely entertained by this film and grateful that although there was PG-13 content, it never became overly abusive. That said, please read the content section first.
