Stranger Things has been the surprise hit of the summer. While movie studios mostly failed to draw audiences to their blockbuster tentpoles, an off-beat original love story to all things Amblin Entertainment took over the conversation. Stranger Things may focus on the coming-of-age of four suburban boys, but they are surrounded by some seriously fascinating women. Yet while everyone is waxing poetic about Barb (Shannon Purser), celebrating Winona Ryder’s fantastic performance, and writing praise about Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown), someone is getting lost in the shuffle.
