Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★★

Look how easy it was.

Welp. It just keeps getting better and better, its intentions unfurling further and further with every watch. The cold open? One of the best in recent memory (I *hate* that they spoiled it in the marketing). The romance? Devastating in its tender-hearted realism. The revenge fantasy? Like a blisteringly acidic slap to the senses. Not a single moment is wasted, and every revelation—as such—is felt right in the gut (Alfred Molina, in particular, delivers a masterclass of a single scene performance). It's absolutely perfect.
