Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★

I knew very little going into this 2020 gem. Carey Mulligan fights modern day misogyny. Bo Burnham is also there. I also knew that either people loved it, or they did until the ending of the film. 

The film is well made and well acted with a very original story. It tackles victim blaming with such venom. It’s definitely unsubtle sometimes but for good reason. 

I get why people don’t like the ending, but morally and realistically I don’t think it has too many problems. The biggest problem is thematically, one could not know if moving on or seeking revenge is what is considered to be the best option in a situation like this. 

It’s pretty solid and people should check it out.
