Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

I can definitely see why this is a polarizing film. However, my idea of why Promising Young Woman is polarizing and why others might find it polarizing might be different. I personally do not like to discuss politics of any sort online, so I’m staying away from the gender politicization aspects of the film, but I suspect there is something there.

My conflicted feelings about the film stem solely from the issues with the script. There are parts of the script I found brilliant and there are parts of the script I found ridiculous and insufferable. No spoilers but there were a few contrivances that could have been handled much better than they were. Unless this was set about ten years ago, which is possible I guess, some of the references and plot points were outdated. I don’t know if it’s appropriate to say I had a good time, but even with the many flaws, I think this is a pretty good flick.

My Top 10 of 2020, so far….
