The Steven Soderbergh movie is showing for the first time at the Berlin film festival, where it's one of 19 contenders for the top Golden Bear award.

Jude plays a psychiatrist who prescribes a new drug he's testing out as part of a lucrative deal with a pharmaceutical giant.

The Anna Karenina star told reporters he was faced with "overcoming the reality that I wasn't going to be able to go to medical school in the time it took to prepare for the part."

He added: "I didn't have a huge relationship with pharmaceuticals or an understanding of them."
