This film discusses the Netflix film The Good Nurse starring Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne, which includes details of the premise. 

While there is no release date yet (Fall 2022 is the referenced release information), Netflix has released some first-look images of their film The Good Nurse. The film is based on the book by Charles Graeber so that it will bring in its reader from the offset. But what’s more interesting regarding this film is the star-led cast, a habit that Netflix has made in the last few years to bolster their ‘blockbuster’ catalog.

Netflix film The Good Nurse premise

Courtesy of Netflix — suspicious that her colleague is responsible for a series of mysterious patient deaths, a nurse risks her own life to uncover the truth in this gripping thriller based on true events.

Thoughts on the premise

The first thing that struck me is the “based on true events” line, which can be misconstrued easily based on past films. But it will be interesting to check out the source material and what story it is based upon. After some brief research, the story is based on the serial killer Charlie Cullen who was dubbed the “Angel of Death” by the media.

The Good Nurse cast

Here is the confirmed cast:

  • Jessica Chastain.
  • Eddie Redmayne.
  • Nnamdi Asomugha.
  • Kim Dickens.
  • Malik Yoba.
  • Alix West Lefler.
  • Noah Emmerich.

The film is directed by Tobias Lindholm (The Investigation, Mindhunter). The screenplay is by Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917, Last Night in Soho, Penny Dreadful).

Of course, the biggest news here is the leading stars Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne — it will be interesting how they work on-screen together!
