The Good Nurse is the newest true crime film to drop on Netflix, and it follows the harrowing story of a nurse, Charles Cullen, who was found responsible for the murder of 29 patients over the course of his career. However, experts believe that the number could in fact be much higher, and actually closer to 400 people.
The film, in which Eddie Redmayne plays Cullen, and Jessica Chastain plays Amy Loughren - the nurse who was instrumental in uncovering his crimes - focuses on the months leading up his eventual arrest. While some parts of the story are left out of the film, including Cullen's motivation for the murders, fans are still praising the movie, particularly the performances of the two leading roles. Many viewers have even expressed how their portrayals of the character are Oscar-worthy.
Taking to Twitter to share their thoughts, one fan wrote, "Jessica Chastain is exceptional in The Good Nurse (2022). Especially the climax. What a performance wow," as another fan wrote. "Eddie Redmayne is all eyeing on that two-time Academy Award winner title after his performance on The Good Nurse."

I’m only back for a sec because I had to announce to the world that Eddie Redmayne should win an Oscar for his role in The Good Nurse and, more specifically, for one specific scene in a diner that lasted seconds and where he didn’t even speak.
