The “OA” Is Your Binge-Worthy Treat

oa-w529-h352Jen Chaney enthuses: ‘The OA — a mystery-spiritual thriller that starts streaming today on Netflix and focuses on a blind woman (Brit Marling) who disappears and resurfaces with her sight granted — is that gift, and it is extraordinary. Even though the project was announced back in 2015, its release date and the specifics of its premise were made public only a few days ago. That

means that many viewers will stumble upon this eight-part series — co-created by Marling and Zal Batmanglij, who co-wrote the films The Sound of My Voice and The East — the same way that The OA’s protagonist initially encounters so many of the details in her environment: with no capacity to see what’s coming.’
