Did not like this. You kept waiting for it to get good but it was just plain creepy. Such a boring thriller. Had a lot of potential given the incredible cast! But alas it fell flat. Nothing special.

New doctor becomes obsessed with a pretty young (high school girl) patient. Does shady stuff to keep her hospitalized. Not much emotional impact to this. The best scenes were between him and a nurse who he felt wasn't treating him with enough respect - that sort of rang true to me, the tensions between the new doctor and the nurses around him. I wish they focused on those relationships instead of one that didn't make much sense. I guess there's some message here about how we put too much faith in doctors.

I thought this was a good thriller. A creepy doctor who was infatuated with his sick patient gets away with murder (twice)

Entertaining. Scary if this could happen in real life.

A not very realistic but nonetheless somewhat entertaining drama about a doctor becoming obessed with becoming a good medical professional.

Doctor supposedly falls in love with the patient. At least that's what they say in the interviews in the extras on the dvd. The film is really just about him craving respect and success. Nothing suspenseful. Not likely to happen as residents do not go through their first year of training that unsupervised.

Good but chilling b/c it very well could actually happen!
