Performance

The newly released movie is worth the watch. Dylan O’Brien’s portrayal of Joel Dawson is significantly appreciable. The movie has successfully his charms on screen. His fun way of playing a character is prominent in the film.

It is said that the dog which Joel carries around was only allowed to be with Dylan O’Brien. Owing to this, the connection onscreen of Joel with the dog is one of the best parts of the movie. There is no point to say that the connection they show is not true in any way.

Ariana Greenblatt’s portrayal of the little Minnow is exceptional. Her acting as the character has brought Minnow to life throughout the movie. The emotions she portrayed looks nowhere close to acting. It feels real with the way she has marked her steps.
