Here's Where You Can Watch The Fallout

Though Jenna Ortega has been acting since 2012, it wasn't until 2022 that she blew up into a worldwide sensation. While the majority of her sudden international fame can be attributed to her breakout role as Wednesday on the Netflix "Addams Family" spin-off of the same name, the actor was also in big horror hits like "Scream" and "X" during the same calendar year.

However, even before these more high-profile roles, Ortega broke new dramatic ground in the 2021 high school drama "The Fallout." The moving debut from writer-director Megan Park follows the survivors of a terrifying school shooting as they bond in an attempt to understand the unfathomable horror that they somehow lived through.

"The Fallout" premiered on HBO Max on January 27th, 2022, after a crowd-pleasing festival run. The film remains available on the service, which is changing its name to Max on May 23rd, 2023. However, the film is also available to rent for those who don't want to take the plunge on the streaming service. Vudu will let you rent "The Fallout" for as low as $7.99, while other services like Apple TV, Prime Video, and YouTube have the movie available for $12.99.

The Fallout is a well-reviewed movie with a quick runtime

Jenna Ortega plays the central character of Vada Cavell in "The Fallout," one of three students who survive the shooting at their high school by hiding in a bathroom stall together. The film, which Warner Bros. Pictures acquired following its rave reviews and award wins at the South by Southwest Film Festival, will likely be of interest to fans of the actor looking to see more of her work.

Regardless of which service you use to watch the movie, you're unlikely to regret it. Not only is Megan Park's film well-received by both critics and general audiences, but it also comes in at a crack runtime of roughly 90 minutes. Of course, the caveat is that "The Fallout" is obviously dealing with some pretty heavy subject matter that not all viewers might be ready or willing to engage with. Either way, Maddie Ziegler, Shailene Woodley, Niles Fitch, John Ortiz, and Julie Bowen co-star with Ortega in the film.
