Sadie Sink’s Incredible Performance in the Upcoming Movie The Whale

In a recent interview, the beloved actor Brendan Fraser praised his co-star Sadie Sink for her acting in the upcoming A24 movie The Whale, which comes out this December. The actress rose to fame for her role as Max in Netflix’s hit show Stranger Things. Although Sadie Sink began acting at seven in small theater productions, Stranger Things was her first role on TV. Since Stranger Things, she acted in Taylor Swift’s All Too Well short film. 

The Whale will be her silver screen debut, and with extremely positive critical reviews, the movie is already receiving Oscar buzz. In The Whale, Brendan Fraser makes a comeback as the lead actor in the film as he plays a secluded obese English teacher who is attempting to reconnect with his estranged daughter, played by Sadie Sink. Sink’s character Ellie is her most emotionally complex character yet. The circumstances of Ellie’s reunion with her father require Sink to portray a wide range of emotional reactions with extreme depth. 

According to critical reviews and Fraser’s own words, she exceeded expectations, “The fluidity that Sadie [Sink] plays, this beautifully controlled rage, was breathtaking to me. I was constantly going up on my lines, and that’s just because I got cobwebs upstairs, and I was wearing a lot of gear, but also because I was just slack-jawed; I’m not joking, watching her work. She won the game ball every day we worked, I’m telling you.”
