Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★

I was really excited to watch this going into it, but was honestly slightly less impressed than I expected to be. Maybe it was something about watching it over Zoom, maybe it was that all the good scenes were in the trailer. As for the good things, it looks really good and is edited well enough, and the entire cast is fantastic with what they’re given. 

Emerald Fennell knew what she was doing, she did it brilliantly however in my opinion I wanted her to do the opposite of what she did. Cassandra Thomas is a very complicated character to talk about. She has a purpose she has given herself and is ready to meet that purpose with no conditions or rules. She is ready to go to extremes to get what she wants. To a point she has a right to because she lost something precious to her that made her feel somewhat complete.
