Here’s the official Netflix synopsis:
In a state-of-the-art correctional facility run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers doses of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. There are no bars, cells, or orange overalls. In Spiderhead, imprisoned volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they aren’t. Sometimes they are a better version. Need to lighten up? There’s a drug for that. Can’t find the words? There is a drug for that too. But when two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), form a bond, their path to redemption takes a trickier turn as Abnesti’s experiments begin to push the boundaries of free will altogether.
The first trailer for the film has been released and Hemsworth looks like he’s having a blast in the role. He seems to do well in dark comedic roles, as evidenced by his film Bad times at El Royale.
