Oona (Bridget Collins) arrives at her recently deceased mother’s small, seaside home to clean the place up and get it ready for sale. Feeling overwhelmed on her first day there she visits a neighbor who invites the young woman to spend the night so as not to be alone. Oona agrees, and while she’s gone a homeless man named Mani (Adeel Akhtar) presumes the house for sale is unoccupied and heads in to squat for the evening. She discovers him the next day, but after shooing him out with a broom handle to the head she guiltily tracks him down in the street and offers him her shed as a nighttime shelter. Slowly and cautiously the two develop a friendship built on their individual solitudes. Oona’s relationship with her mother was a bumpy one, but it was clearly preferable to the veiled loneliness she suffers through now. Mani’s lifestyle leaves him alone much of the time, but he has found solace before in the company of an older transient who’s now on the bring of a serious illness. Stranger Things is an honest and uncomplicated tale of two people finding what they didn’t know they needed in each other. There’s a natural rhythm to the performances of the two leads that feels lifelike and real until the film’s final minutes, but not even an ending that rings more convenient than true can detract from what these two have built.
