Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★½

Holy shit the twists turns, zigs and zags this film takes!

I haven't had this same identical reaction to a film in the theater since I saw Gone Girl with a friend of mine in 2014. And poetically enough, she was with me again for this cracker debut from Emerald Fennell. I mean, this film's ending had me lost for words except "oh my god".
The framing, composition and music choices were all just so on point and the performances, oh my performances! Bo Burnham has some great comedic timing and Carey Mulligan gives one of my favourite performances of the year and her career.

Sorry if I sound insane, this movie just blew me away in all directions. Go see it when it opens.
