The Good Nurse Promises a Complex Story
The Good Nurse film is directed by Tobias Lindholm and written by Krysty Wilson- Cairns. It is based on the 2013 book with the same name which Charles Graeber wrote. It is an American crime drama film. Jessica Chastain, Nnamdi Asomugha, Eddie Redmayne, Noah Emmerich, and Kim Dickens are the major stars. It had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 2022. It will release in some selected theatres in the United States on October 19, 2022. It will release on the OTT platform Netflix on October 26, 2022.
Jessica Chastain is playing the role of Amy who is a compassionate nurse and a single mother. She is having health issues and is struggling with a life-threatening heart condition. She is doing night shifts at the ICU and is stretched to her physical and emotional limits.
Eddie Redmayne is playing the role of Charlie Cullen who is thoughtful and empathetic. He also starts working at the unit as a nurse. Both Amy and Charlie became friends and develop a strong and devoted friendship while sharing long shifts at the hospital. It is the first time in years that Amy started believing in herself and started having faith in her and her daughter’s future. But this was short-lived.
Many patients started dying under mysterious circumstances and this series of death led to an investigation that points to Charlie as the main suspect. Amy is then forced to risk the safety of her children as well as her life while she is forced to uncover the truth behind these deaths. Amy was shocked to know that Charlie is found responsible for the murder. He was accused of the death of dozens of patients over sixteen years across nine hospitals and two states.
The movie seems to be riveting and is a crime thriller about a serial killer who has not been caught for sixteen years. One can also say that movie is a complex story of murder and friendship. I would be waiting for its release on the OTT platform Netflix as the movie seems to be worth watching.
