A harsh, if finally underwhelming indictment of a democratic country’s health care system poses as a gripping true-life thriller from the details surrounding innocuous medical professional Charlie Cullen.
Jessica Chastain is the ailing, hard-working nurse Amy who befriends Eddie Redmayne’s Charlie who apparently has slipped through the cracks of many a hospital
How this all unfolds under the direction of Tobias Lindholm turns all too familiar and unrealistic after an unnerving clinical feel early. Chastain and Redmayne deserve better than this material as decisions and dialogue aren’t very sound as a procedural develops with the final revelations about Cullen more interesting than what isn’t tautly penetrating. The good cast in this deceptively titled, moderately engaging but prolonged nurse includes Noah Emmerich and Kim Dickens.
