The Good Doctor

Now Playing Synopsis: A physician heads down a dangerous road when he sets aside his ethics in this thriller from director Lance Daly. Martin Blake (Orlando Bloom) is a British medical student who has come to the United States to begin a residency at a hospital in Southern California. He is handsome and charming, but beneath the surface he's an arrogant man who longs to wield power over others. Blake doesn't fare well with his first few patients, and is on shaky ground with his superiors when he begins treating Diane (Riley Keough), a beautiful teenager with a kidney infection. Diane is clearly taken with Blake's good looks and they enjoy one another's company, while his superiors are impressed with his care for her. But Blake doesn't want Diane released too quickly, and he begins adjusting her medication so that her infection will take longer to clear up. Jimmy (Michael Peña), an orderly, notices what Blake is doing, and threatens to expose him unless he gets what he wants -- a steady supply of pharmaceuticals. Also starring Rob Morrow, Taraji P. Henson, and J.K. Simmons, The Good Doctor received its world premiere at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Orlando Bloom, Troy Garity, Rob Morrow, Taraji P.
