THE GOOD DOCTOR

Large_film_117705778_marquee

Lonesome first-year medical resident Dr. Martin Blake (Orlando Bloom) is eager to impress his superiors, but a few missteps set him back, igniting his hidden insecurities. When he finally gets the respect he so desperately craves from an enchanting teenage patient—Diane (Riley Keough), who is admitted with a kidney infection—he'll do anything to keep her under his care. But when the chief resident finally takes notice of him, Martin can't seem to catch a break: The head nurse has it in for him, and orderly Jimmy (an impressive Michael Peña) discovers Martin's secret budding relationship with Diane and blackmails him for prescription painkillers. Soon a desperate and paranoid Martin is no longer just fighting for respect, but also for his reputation and career.

While astutely capturing the occasionally bleak and warped world of intern life, director Lance Daly (Kisses) shows how enthusiasm can quickly turn into obsession in this slow-burning psychological thriller. Alongside a sharp supporting cast, Bloom paints a gripping portrait of a man who faces the accelerating depths of infatuation and, above all, ambition.
