Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★

Not the movie your expecting for better or worse. Fantastic balancing act of two different films (revenge and redemption) for the first 2/3s just constantly flipping on one another until the third (and seriously jarring) act. Has so many things to say and mange’s to fearlessly voice them through Mulligans monumental performance but even as a subversive, feminine take on the subject matter it felt, to myself at least, like a well thought and slight conversation instead of the roaring scream it intends to end as.
