Written and directed by Michel Franco, Chronic stars Tim Roth as David, a nurse who works with terminally ill patients. Efficient and dedicated to his profession, he develops strong and even intimate relationships with each person he cares for.
But outside of his work David is ineffectual, awkward, and reserved. It is clear that he
needs each patient as much as they need him...
“sombre, intelligent, finely composed...Tim Roth is excellent”
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“Franco's script teases out the character's tangled ambiguities with immaculate control... Roth, meanwhile, is as marvellous as he's ever been”
- Guy Lodge, Time Out
