Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

How do you rate a film that you’ve had the most intensely complicated reaction to?

Carey Mulligan is masterful. Bo Burnham’s character arc is brilliant. This is bold and I can respect that. And the more I sit with it, the more the twist softens. Either way, the tonal shifts were too abrupt for me. Unfortunately, much of this felt like unearned shock value by the end.
