A revenge thriller done from the point-of-view of alleged Brett Kavanaugh college victims does not sound like a #MeToo thrill ride that audiences would want to watch. Yet, in the hands of Oscar worthy Carey Mulligan, this dark journey has more humor and empathy than one might expect.
No character gets off the hook for the sins of their past. Long after the credits roll, audiences will be hooked by the thought-provoking question at the heart of PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN – why do these situations keep happening with alcohol and women to blame?
First-time writer/director Emerald Fennell proves to be the real PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN and should deservedly be the talk of this award season.
It is available in limited theatrical release on 12/25.
