I had the chance to review Promising Young Woman by director Emerald Fennell. The film stars Carey Mulligan, Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Connie Britton, Adam Brody, Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, Max Greenfield, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chris Lowell, Sam Richardson, Molly Shannon, Clancy Brown.

Promising Young Woman is a film that will make you uncomfortable, and that is EXACTLY the point. Unfortunately, it seems to take uncomfortable situations for changes to actually occur in society.

I literally felt goosebumps during every scene and was blown away by the final act. This movie may leave you feeling angry at the ending, but regardless of how you feel, it will leave you thinking.

Listen in as I share my thoughts on my favorite film of the year and Carey Mulligan’s Oscar-worthy performance.

Synopsis:

From visionary director, Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman… until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future.  But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night.  Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.

Promising Young Woman arrives in theaters on Christmas day.
