Best: Cameron Monaghan's sensitive performance
Cameron Monaghan plays Asher, Jonas' best friend who finds himself assigned to uphold the draconian laws Jonas is rebelling against. At first Asher's a willing pawn, but when Jonas tries to flee he's tasked with punishing the defiant kid. Watching Monaghan decide what to do when his own pal's life is put in his hands is heartbreaking and moving; can he defy orders, see through the coercive illusion of this totalitarian regime, and elect to save his own friend? How Monaghan reacts is touching and authentic-seeming.
