In this deftly directed psychological thriller, diligent medical resident James Hayman transfers to a rural Illinois hospital to escape from the shadow of a traumatic experience at his previous post. But his past catches up with him when he encounters a new patient, 19-year-old Helen, whose asthma attacks and impending lung transplant strike him as suspicious. Chicago filmmaker Alex Thompson offers the same sensitive and delicate approach to character on display in his celebrated feature debut Saint Frances; Sidney Flanigan (Never Rarely Sometimes Always) is subtly enthralling as Helen, while Steppenwolf ensemble member Namir Smallwood delivers a riveting performance as James, a promising doctor increasingly losing his grasp on reality.
