At the 18th Zurich Film Festival and now finally on Netflix, there’s the gripping thriller based on true events, The Good Nurse, directed by Academy Award nominee Tobias Lindholm and stars Academy Award winners Jessica Chastain as Amy Loughren and Eddie Redmayne as Charles Cullen. The actor along with the director talk about the many things they didn’t know about Cullen, first of all why he did what he did. Eddie Redmayne describes how he approached the darker aspects of his character as well as his compassionate ones. Charles Cullen had the ability of remaining often invisible and anonymous and the film highlights that.
The Good Nurse: Amy, a compassionate nurse and single mother struggling with a life-threatening heart condition, is stretched to her physical and emotional limits by the hard and demanding night shifts at the ICU. But help arrives when Charlie, a thoughtful and empathetic fellow nurse, starts at her unit. While sharing long nights at the hospital, the two develop a strong and devoted friendship, and for the first time in years, Amy truly has faith in her and her young daughters’ future. But after a series of mysterious patient deaths sets off an investigation that points to Charlie as the prime suspect, Amy is forced to risk her life and the safety of her children to uncover the truth.
