Where you can stream The Good Nurse

Nobody likes hospitals, but how about a true crime story about a good nurse who helped thwart a murderous one? If that piques your interest, then look no further than The Good Nurse, a thriller starring Oscar winners Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye) and Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) that is America’s latest streaming obsession.

The movie, which was released on October 26, tells the true story of an overworked nurse who begins to suspect her new co-worker has been knowingly killing patients in their ward. The movie wasn’t released in theaters; instead, it premiered as a streaming exclusive and quickly became one of the most-watched movies in America.

The Good Nurse tells the true story of Amy Loughren, a single mother who works late night shifts at Parkfield Memorial Hospital. Overworked and in need of health insurance, Amy is at first relieved when Charles Cullen, a new nurse in her ward, helps lighten her workload and offers a sympathetic shoulder for her to cry on. Yet her trust in Charles soon disintegrates as patients start dying mysteriously under his watch.

Along with Chastain and Redmayne, the movie stars Nnamdi Asomugha as Danny, Noah Emmerich as Tim, Kim Dickens as Linda, and Malik Yoba as Sam. The film’s running time is 121 minutes and it is rated R. Currently, The Good Nurse has an 80% score on the Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes and a 64 critics score on Metacritic, so it’s safe to assume the movie will leave true crime fans happy.
