Director Nicholas Jarecki has shared the dramatic thriller. “I always like these films that have multiple stories going on; the films of high and low,” director Jarecki tells EW.

The opioid crisis is going on and the issue is a the forefront of director Nicholas Jarecki’s (Arbitrage) new dramatic thriller, Crisis. Starring Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), — who serves as a producer — Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name), Evangeline Lilly (Avengers: Endgame), and Greg Kinnear (As Good as it Gets), the story is about the impact opioids have across all walks of life arrives in theaters February 26 and on digital and demand March 5.

Those storylines follow Dr. Tyrone Brower (Oldman), a university professor who is dealing with revelations about his research employer, a major pharmaceutical company bringing a new “non-addictive” painkiller to market; Jake Kelly (Hammer), an undercover DEA agent who attempts to infiltrate an international Fentanyl smuggling operation; and Claire Reimann (Lilly), an architect recovering from an oxycodone addiction who tracks down the truth behind her son’s involvement with narcotics.

To make sure authenticity is maintained of all the human stories, the writer-director put did a lot of research on the ongoing epidemic as possible. “These stories are all based on real events, people I knew, or stories I heard,” he says. “I worked with reporters from different publications that had covered the opioid crisis, as well as an undercover narcotics detective who has run the sheriff’s task force on prescription abuse, and scientists inside pharmaceutical companies. When I was writing, I wanted to peel back, what did the corporations know? What did the regulators know? It’s a very complicated topic. It’s not an indictment on any one group, but how did we let things get so out of control? Your friend, family member, husband, wife, is now battling a life-threatening addiction and it could be through no fault of their own. People got prescribed pills because they hurt their back on the job and now they’re battling a demon.”

They added scale to the thriller drama is, what Jarecki calls it to be as “artisanal approach” to filmmaking. “We’re kind of old-school filmmakers, inspired by Nolan and Tarantino,” he says. “We try to give you something gritty and real and beautiful at the same time.” Jarecki achieved that look by shooting on 35mm Kodak film and believes it’s that aesthetic teamed with the cast’s nuanced performances that make the movie both “thrilling and cinematic.”

The trailer can be seen above. Crisis arrives in theaters February 26 and on digital and demand March 5.
