"A loopy joy from start to finish, Bradley Cooper proves that he's the real deal." (David Hughes, Empire)

Eddie Morra's (Bradley Cooper) life changes instantly when he is introduced to NZT, a new pharmaceutical drug that allows him to harness the full power of his brain. Soon Eddie is able to do everything exceptionally well, which catches the attention of people desperate to get their hands on his stash. Eddie dodges mysterious stalkers, a vicious gangster, and an intense police investigation as he attempts to hang on to his dwindling supply long enough to outwit his enemies. Also starring Robert De Niro and directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist).
