Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★

It's always frustrating when a movie is genuinely engaging for most of its runtime, then suddenly face-plants right at the end. What starts off as an enjoyable and admittedly clever revenge flick, with Carey Mulligan driving much of it with her charismatic and riveting performance as our dangerous heroine, completely sputters out in the third act and finishes on an awkward note that doesn't feel nearly as cathartic as it should.
