Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

Carey Mulligan was fantastic in this, and Bo Burnam nailed the sensitive guy with a heart of shit trope — I felt legitimately sucker punched by the chemistry they had.

I think I was expecting the movie to be a little more vicious in its treatment of the perpetrators, but that it doesn’t quite ever acquiesce to the genre demands of the “revenge thriller” is part of what makes the final act so damned hard to watch and why this one is sticking with me hours after having seen it.
