A young woman surprises everyone by turning up out of the blue to deliver a tale full of mystery and horror. That's the premise of this eight-part show, which stars Brit Marling and was co-written by the actress and the show's director, Zal Batmanglij, with whom she previously collaborated on the films Sound of My Voice and The East. It also describes the odd manner of the show's arrival, given that Netflix chose to release The OA today with virtually no advance warning.
It’s a holiday weekend, which probably means you have some down time. What better activity, while you’re digesting that leftover Turkey, than catching up on some of 2016's best scifi and fantasy films ?
