Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★

With the opening scene of  Charli XCX singing about thinking about boys playing over a slow-mo dance montage of frumpy business men’s bums and bulges in khakis, I could tell I was in for something special. 

A few scenes later, after she leaves her first predator behind, and is chowing down on a ketchup dripping hot dog and staring down cat calling construction workers until they think she is the creep, I thought I knew where this gender flip on predatory behavior was going. 

I was wrong. This is something special. But it is completely unpredictable. 

Don’t let that rainbow cupcake aesthetic fool you. This cuts deep. And it hurts.
