Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★½

Close to a 2.5. Too many tone/genre shifts that prevent to tell a consistent story. A bit rom-com here, a bit revenge thriller there and at the end we get a Black Mirror ending that had no impact on me. Promising Young Woman is a good revenge film that is also surprisingly very...tame? It’s like the film couldn’t decide what it wants to be by deciding to be everything. There’s a certain “twist” with one particular character (I don’t mean the controversial ending), which is far too predictable. Every scene with one particular character firmly screamed for a twist.

Carey Mulligan is a god tho

EDIT: it’s a 2.5 now
