Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

Carey Mulligan is the Bernard Goetz of date rape as she gives male predators the comeuppance they deserve.

It's a bit tonally uneven as it flips between comedy, drama, horror and the (dis-)satisfaction of revenge, but Mulligan puts in a femme fatale performance to die for.

The ending is frankly loaded and very jarring, (and for some of my film friends, triggering). To say more would be to spoil it.
