Description by Wikipedia

Lucy is a 2014 English-language French science fiction action film written and directed by Luc Besson and produced by his wife Virginie Besson-Silla for his company Europacorp. The film was shot in Taipei, Paris and New York City. It stars Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Choi Min-sik and Amr Waked. Johansson portrays the title character, a woman who gains psychokinetic abilities when a nootropic drug is absorbed into her bloodstream.

The film was released on July 25, 2014, and became a box office success, grossing over $463 million, 11 times the budget of $40 million. It received generally positive, but also polarized, critical reviews; although praise was given for Johansson's performance, entertaining or intriguing themes and visuals, a number of critics found the plot nonsensical, especially its focus on the ten percent of the brain myth and resulting abilities.
