We start this week by reviewing Tobias Lindholm’s true crime drama THE GOOD NURSE (1:54), about an ER nurse (Jessica Chastain) who discovers that her charming colleague (Eddie Redmayne) is secretly murdering their patients. The film misses some areas it could dig deeper into this real-life tragedy, but it’s really well-acted and has a strong ensemble. Next, we cover Harry Bradbeer’s ENOLA HOLMES 2 (22:17), a plainly named sequel that provides another engaging adventure for Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown). It’s a delightful romp that’s still a lot of fun even if it’s not quite as brisk as the first film. And in this week’s Patreon exclusive audio, we talk about the winner of our Noirvember poll, Jane Campion’s 2003 film IN THE CUT, starring Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo! For anyone who celebrated, we hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
