MANIAC

Esquire Middle East - - CULTURE -

This new show from direc­tor Cary Fuku­naga (True De­tec­tive) might be a re­make of a Nor­we­gian com­edy about a men­tal pa­tient with ex­trav­a­gant delu­sions, but the signs are that this ver­sion will be cranked up a num­ber of gears. For starters it has two pa­tients for the price of one — played by Su­per­bad alumni Emma Stone and Jonah Hill — and the cause of their fan­tasies is not good old-fash­ioned in­san­ity but a space-age med­i­cal trial gone wrong (Big Pharma con­spir­a­cies ahoy!). It also has a sup­port­ing cast that in­cludes Justin Th­er­oux, Sally Field and Girls’ Jemima Kirke. You’d be mad to miss it, etc.
