A woman (Brigid Brannagh) springs into action after discovering that the twin brother (Timothy Granaderos) of her daughter's boyfriend escapes from a mental institution and hatches a twisted plan for revenge.
"The Nurse" is a modest but tense, little thriller — no frills or big name actors, but an eerie build up to twisted showdown between two women, one a psychologist (Brigid Brannagh) with some issues of her own, and the other a home-care nurse (Willa Ford) with a dark agenda.
After an opening tease — a chase and a seemingly random murder, the story begins when Cara (Brigid Brannagh) and her husband (Jack Noseworthy), move into their new home. Then, when Cara's estranged father (John Heard), has a stroke, Cara takes him in as well along with an in-home nurse, Lynette (Willa Ford). Right off the bat we know something's out of whack (I mean, a smoking hot nurse moves in to take care of everything what could go wrong?) So, while Cara gets to work in her home office doing marriage counseling, Lynette gets to work on Cara's father or does she? No spoilers, but as I'm sure you can figure out, Lynette's not really who she says she is, and as Cara begins to uncover the truth, Lynette's behavior gets stranger and more deranged. Eventually, the truth hits the fan and Cara has to fight back.
Beyond the fun of watching Willa Ford's nurse character twist everyone around her finger before coming unhinged, the story is also a crafty look at what makes people, well come unhinged. Some of the same issues that made one woman become a shrink, made the other woman become a psycho. Guess we all could lose it, with a little push. Fun.
