An outstanding revenge film by Emerald Fennell starring Carey Mulligan who played the role of Cassandra Thomas phenomenally.

Cassandra in Greek mythology was a Trojan Priestess who was cursed to utter true prophecies yet was never to be believed.

Although the ending had me torn, I understood it. Cassandra went into it knowing that her dying was a possibility so, she prepared herself for that ending. And her revenge on those awful people was never sadistic or cruel, she was throwing them into the same situation as many survivors have been placed into by their oppressor so that they could feel what Nina felt.

This was an incredibly sad film but, an incredibly necessary and important film too. 
This deserved all the nominations and deserves big wins.
