Writer Stephen Elliott (James Franco) finds sudden success after penning a memoir about his painful adolescence and the abuse he endured at the hands of his father (Ed Harris), but his career starts to fall apart when his dad publicly refutes his version of events. Meanwhile, Elliott attends the trial of a seemingly perfect family man (Christian Slater) accused of killing his wife, hoping to gather material for his next book. Amber Heard co-stars. Written and directed by Pamela Romanowsky, The Adderall Diaries was adapted from the book of the same name by Stephen Elliott.
