We are excited to announce that Stranger Things has received a great review from Variety. Adeel Akhtar and Bridget Collins receive praise for their intelligent performances and the film is called delicate, dignified and soulful. Here’s an extract:
Shot on the English seaside and with a Dreyer-esque instinct for the complexity and frankness of the human face, the pic is essentially a two-hander, its action muted and its pretensions modest. At the same time, its theme — the capacity of the heart to make connections, under odd and unlikely circumstances — harbors something titanic. Much of this is conveyed via the directors’ appreciation for revealing detail, and eloquent gesture.
