Based on the acclaimed play by CP Taylor, Good stars Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises) in an extraordinary change-of-pace role as John Halder; a decent individual with family problems. A German literature professor in the 1930s, Halder explores his personal circumstances by writing a novel advocating compassionate euthanasia. When the book is unexpectedly enlisted by powerful political figures in support of government propaganda, Halder finds his career rising in an optimistic current of nationalism and prosperity. Yet with Halder’s change in fortune, his seemingly inconsequential decisions potentially jeopardize the people in his life with devastating effects.
