Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
I'm surprised at just how many filler episodes there are of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE. DREAM GIRL is a case in point; it involves five characters working at a theatre who find themselves trapped in a bizarre reality which has come about thanks to the vivid imagination of one of the stagehands.
What this all boils down to is a quirky situation in which the various characters react and engage with various odd events. The trouble is, these episodes are completely alienating for the viewer, who must sit through 20-odd minutes of nonsense before being confronted with a lukewarm 'explanation'. Needless to say the budget is non-existent and the acting is very poor. Next please.
