The terrifying Netflix true-crime film was one of the best ones to come out in late October. 

The Good Nurse, starring Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne, depicts how a villain may flourish in a dysfunctional system while being modest and realistic the entire time. 

The way in which Netflix portrays serial killers has drawn some criticism.  

The most recent controversy centered on the television show Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.

which critics believe fetishized the titular murderer at the expense of the narrative producer Ryan Murphy promised would be presented: that of the victims.  

The Good Nurse is a dramatization of yet another serial killer, Charles Cullen in this instance.  

Based on Charles Graeber’s novel of the same name, The Good Nurse centers on two critical care unit nightshift nurses, each of whom believes the other is to blame for a string of unexplained patient fatalities. 

Amy Loughren (Jessica Chastain), a former single mother, has cardiomyopathy but must keep this a secret from her employers for fear of losing her work.  

Amy is gradually going bankrupt due to the high expense of her therapies, which is typical of American healthcare. 

At this moment, The Good Nurse’s unique method of portraying a serial killer is most apparent.
