In 1996, a patient died in a Pennsylvania hospital.

A patient dies in this hospital, which gives rise to an internal and police investigation.
Amy discovers that this patient has received insulin.
Later, something similar happens with another death result… everything seems to point to Cullen as the author of these administrations.

Critical

Drama with touches of thriller.

It is based on the true story of Charles Cullen, a nurse who murdered many patients in different hospitals in the United States, but the film leaves her story in the background, the main character being Amy, a fellow nurse and friend of Cullen which hoards much of the plot.

angel-death-good-nurse-review-review-eddie-redmayneThe work of the interpreters is good.

Jessica Chastain (like Amy), between fragile and chubby, is a caring nurse who is involved with her patients.
Eddie Redmayne is a seemingly angelic and harmless character.

Their performances support the film.

One of the problems is that their authors don’t know what they mean.

The plot, the mystery around the psychopath, dissolves in the personal drama of the nurse, a sick woman who must raise her two daughters alone.

Nor can we say that it is a psychological portrait.
Cullen’s motives are unknown.
The character is flat, little known, he lacks depth.

Moreover, the narration lacks rhythm, it is excessively slow, monotonous.

As for the technical aspect, the film takes place indoors, in dark environments, with little light even during the day.

The few exterior scenes take place on days of leaden skies, blurry images, gray tones… giving a sad and dull look.

Besides the story of the main nurses, the film criticizes an opaque health care system, seen as an airtight enterprise that values ​​reputation and finances over moral decisions, portraying it almost as Cullen’s perfect accomplice.
