"I see your lush romanticism of Normal People, and I raise you the totally twisted sexual tension of Run," says Maureen Lee Lenker, adding: "A large part of the tension and attraction comes from the ingenious casting. (Domhnall) Gleeson and (Merritt) Wever have such electric chemistry they probably have the power of resuscitation. There’s a devil-may-care energy to both of them that turns the flippancy of their side-eye into eye-banging without even trying. Wever has a sensual, earthy energy, the type that has catapulted the likes of Lauren Bacall and Kathleen Turner to stardom, while Gleeson is all boyish smirks and unfettered playboy glee. Taking an impromptu cross-country train trip leads to the kind of mussed hair and bedroom eyes that feel almost intrusive to bear witness to." ALSO: Why does it feel like Run has gone off the rails?
