Gordon and the Whale, the movie blog, has reviewed Stranger Things and has some incredibly glowing things to say about the film. The reviewer, Joshua Brunstein, wasn’t entirely satisfied by the ending, but on the other hand, calls the film “an absolute must see feature” and particularly praises the lead performances.
[Oona is] played wonderfully by Bridget Collins. She gives one of the most fantastic performances of the past 12 months, that is both hauntingly real, and without any artifice or sentimentality. It’s a wonderfully understated performance, that is paired perfectly with her partner in crime, Mani, played by FOUR LIONS’ Adeel Akhtar. Both are the epitome of understated performances.
