Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★½

Pretty great and intense little film here.

Parts of it come across as a horror film, some of the setups and all. But it really is a strong, very well acted tale of heartfelt revenge.

The ending surprised me a bit, and part of me thinks it went a tiny bit too far. But in the long run I found it quite pleasing.

Lots of great little performances, including Alison Brie, who's becoming a better actor than I took her for in every indie film I see her in lately ('Horse Girl' I'm talking about you). But it's Carey Mulligan here that shines through this one.

It's a slow moving film I'll give you that, but once you see the whole thing its all worth the ride and quite satisfying.

See it!
