Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne plays a difficult role in Netflix’ fact-based film The Good Nurse. He is Charlie Cullen, a gentle, smiling, apparently empathetic new hire at Oakfield Hospital in New Jersey, following a string of jobs in hospitals across the US. He bonds with nurse Amy Loughren played by Jessica Chastain, helping her navigate work/life difficulties and they become friends. But a series of deaths of patients who were not expected to die raises her suspicions. Redmayne is extraordinary carrying us through his masterful arc, revealing how Cullen got away with an estimated 400 murders. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Redmayne.
