Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

I think I wanted to like this more than I actually did. It gets points for being timely & not completely predictable, but it also feels... thin? It seemed like it wants to be arty but the vibe is more horror... but then so much is left to the imagination that there’s not enough there for the horror side to truly horrify. Rape/revenge is a rich subgenre, and I guess this does a few new things, but it doesn’t shoot to the top of the canon for me.

(Special mention though for the interior decoration at Cassie’s parents’ home! I felt like I was back in my parents’ friends’ fancy living room.)
