Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★★

this movie felt way too real. The ending hurt, and was super disturbing to watch, and I can understand why people didn’t like it. But I think that’s the genius of the film. It wasn’t marketing towards women, in the typical revenge film girl power kind of way. This movie was for the men. This was a movie aimed at making men take a hard look at themselves, their friends, and the things they’ve done. We need more movies like this. None of the men in the film seem like rapists, or murderers. They’re not just obvious creeps, they seem to love their girlfriends, they don’t see anything they’ve done to women as wrong.they think they’re Good Men. But it’s all too easy for them to dole out violence to women who get in their way. It’s all too easy for them to shutup, protect their friends, not defend women. And it’s all too easy because they know they’ll get away with it. This movie is disturbing because every second of it is real. Every man needs to watch this movie. They might not ever understand until they do
