Review: Jessica Chastain is good as ‘The Good Nurse,’ but Eddie Redmayne is bad as the bad nurse.
When you see Jessica Chastain in a film like “The Theory of Everything,” you tend to hope for a breakout performance that could help push her to bigger and better things. The same can be said about the performance by Eddie Redmayne as the bad nurse. But the truth is that this movie is both a showcase of Chastain’s talents, as well as a proof that it’s difficult to get a great performance out of Redmayne. And you know what?

She’s obviously a great actress, and there’s a lot of depth to her role that you can just feel. The way she is able to put her life on hold during her time with the dead, just her mannerisms and the way that she speaks, it’s just a great performance.
But, more importantly than the acting,
