8 Must-See Olivia Wilde Movies, Including ‘Better Living Through Chemistry’

A respectable small-town pharmacist (played by Sam Rockwell) delivers a prescription to a lonely trophy wife (played by Olivia Wilde).  She takes him on a walk on the wild side, which includes extra-large martinis, uninhibited bedroom behavior and the illicit pleasures of the pharmacopeia he has access to in his store.  Composers Andrew Feltenstein and John Nau (“Anchorman 2”; “Casa De Mi Padre”) load the soundtrack with whimsical, colorful, and jazzy tunes; not unlike what one might experience under the influence in this murderously dark comedy.
