Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★

"Nothing you have seen about this film could prepare for what really goes down by the end of it. Promising Young Woman is a tough film to stomach, its realism determined to unsettle some. If I was caught off guard, audiences best be warned for a similar reaction But that’s the point, it should be for a plot based on the anarchic qualities of toxic masculinity and the culture around it, still lessening a determinable safety which must improve. Mulligan may be portraying a heroine deliberate in playing along with thoughtless individuals committing bait and switch tactics for personal gain. Nevertheless, just like the rest of Fennell’s cast, she slays the character in such a raw, human manner, blending in with the rest of this madcap work of cinematic caution that’s easily one of the year’s best."
