Tobias Lindholm, acclaimed screenwriter of The Hunt, directs Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne in this quietly insidious true crime story.

Despite living with a chronic heart condition, nurse and single mother Amy Loughren is forced to flout medical opinion and keep working so she will be eligible for health insurance. When helpful new nurse Charles Cullen arrives, lightening Amy’s workload, he seems like a godsend. But as the pair become fast friends, a series of inexplicable deaths occur among patients under their care, leading Amy to question just how well she knows her colleague.

Skilfully adapted from Charles Graeber’s non-fiction book by Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917, Last Night in Soho), The Good Nurse is a refreshingly unsensational portrait of a serial killer, featuring two sensational performances from Chastain and Redmayne.

Presented as part of the 66th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express.
