Nurses are supposed to make sure their patients are comfortable and well-taken care of. But what if that kindly nurse, who you expect to do what’s best, is actually trying to kill you? That’s the question that is asked in the new Netflix thriller, “The Good Nurse.”
As seen in the trailer for “The Good Nurse,” the film follows the astonishing true story of a nurse who is suspected of poisoning his patients, leading to their untimely deaths. When another nurse begins to suspect her coworker, she is asked to risk her family’s safety to get to the truth.
The cast includes Jessica Chastain, Eddie Redmayne, Nnamdi Asomugha, Kim Dickens, Malik Yoba, Alix West Lefler, and Noah Emmerich. “The Good Nurse” is directed by Tobias Lindholm, who is best known as a filmmaker who worked on projects such as “Mindhunter,” “A War,” and “The Investigation.” The script is written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who previously worked on films such as “Last Night in Soho” and “1917.”
Here’s the synopsis:
