Indie Gems: The Good Doctor

What if..

Dr. Martin Blake (Orlando Bloom) is getting the hang of becoming on doctor. He's a bit insecure, one of his nurses (played by Taraji P. Hensen) gives him a hard time. When Diane (Riley Keough) comes in with a kidney infection, Dr. Blake is suddenly fascinated with her. Once she's well, her family invites him to dinner, but he's not ready to let her go just yet.

I always joke about how I wish Orlando Bloom was a better actor because he's so nice to look at. In this film he actually does a pretty good job. The supporting cast are nice touches, with Hensen, Michael Pena, and even JK Simmons shows up for a short time. I found the film to be very interesting but the generic score and choppy ending hurt it a bit.

It's some of Bloom's best work and technical issues aside, it's a good film that is easy to get in to.

Grade: B
