THE GOOD NURSE

CLOSING NIGHT

US CINEMA

US 2022, 121 min, director: Tobias Lindholm

Based on a true story, Tobias Lindholm’s multi-faceted feature is a dazzling shapeshifter that successfully operates on a variety of levels: as a psychological thriller, as a damning indictment of health-care bureaucracy, and as a showcase for two of our finest actors, Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne. As mild-mannered, socially awkward new-hire nurse Charles Cullen, Redmayne’s ambidextrous performance is an astonishing feat, a perfectly calibrated portrait that’s shattering to behold. Counterbalancing that is Chastain’s nuanced, committed turn as his principled and hardworking fellow nurse, Amy Loughren, a single mom suffering from her own health crisis. Jody Lee Lipes’ somber cinematography further expands on The Good Nurse’s sobering themes, illustrating the shadows that can haunt the psyches of those around us. —Randy Myers
