Very good, especially Grant and Hackman
I thought Hugh Grant did an excellent job. True, Dr. Luthan just couldn't give up on finding out what happened to that man, which surely wouldn't be realistic for someone in his high-pressure profession as an ER doctor. That was just one patient, after all. But it made for an interesting and suspenseful movie. Grant also gave Dr. Luthan a pleasant manner even under pressure, and a sense of humor, as in the scene where a patient was screaming, and Dr. Luthan said she must have gotten her bill.

Gene Hackman was also fabulous. Whether what he did was ethical could be debated, but Dr. Myrick came across very well as someone not quite evil, but not the sort of person one would necessarily want making life-and-death decisions.

J. K. Simmons was quite good as Dr. Mingus, who was working with Dr. Myrick on his project. And Sarah Jessica Parker was quite appealing as Nurse Jodie. I also liked the black homeless man who kept coming to Dr. Luthan for prescriptions he didn't need.

A very good effort, with difficult moral questions.
