Ciarán LD’s review published on Letterboxd:
Emerald Fennell and Carey Mulligan have an absolute blast with the offbeat and remarkable Promising Young Woman
The colour palette, the music, the costumes, the script - I.C.O.N.I.C.
Carey Mulligan earned her Oscar in this movie - even if she doesn’t get it this year this performance will be brought up for whenever she does get one
Wholeheartedly appreciate how this movie picks a lane and absolutely sticks to it - no fence sitting, very refreshing
I also enjoyed how Fennell tricks us into a false sense of security + hints at a different ending to root for through the relationship with Ryan only to pull the rug out from under us and uses it to double down on its message - excellent stuff
