The Good Nurse Review
Jessica Chastain has done a phenomenal job, she deserves a pat on the back. That was such an overwhelming performance. She played the character of a real nurse who is struggling with her own problems, the deadly heart condition while taking care for the ICU patients.
On the flipside, Eddie Redmayne also deserves an oscar for his awesome role as a villanious character. Even though, the lighning was a little dark but that was only to make us realize how dark the actual theme is. This was a chilling American serial killer drama that deserves a watch.
