Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

Mulligan was a promising young med school student when she and her BFF dropped out of school after a devastating event. She's seeking redemption by revenging on guys after her pretending to be drunk in a bar show, but when an ex colleague student enters her coffee shop, it seems to turn out differently. Or not?

Mulligan's all over the place: she's in every frame of the movie, and is able to convey the different personalities of her character wonderfully. Burnham is cute and also does a terrific job, but I didn't really believe them as a couple. Some minor plot contrivances tend to spoil the final fun, but as a whole it's an original and entertaining mix of a revenge thriller and a budding romance.
