It’s one of the rules of movies that any film title that begins with ‘The Good…’ is about someone who isn’t very good at all. It appears that law will continue with The Good Doctor, which sees Orland Bloom as Martin Blake, an ambitious but anxious young doctor, eager to impress his superiors and colleagues: Chief Resident Waylans (Rob Morrow), self-assured fellow intern Dan (Troy Garity) and no-nonsense nurse Theresa (Taraji P. Henson). But things are not going Martin’s way and he can’t seem to shake off his insecurities. When 18-year-old patient Diane (Riley Keough) is admitted for a kidney infection, Martin steps in, getting the much-needed boost of self-esteem he craves. But things take a dark turn as his enthusiasm begins to become an obsession. No UK release date is currently set, but it’s out in the US in August.
And is it just us, or does Bloom have the hairstyle of the 7-year-old schoolboy in this film?
