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.

    Exposing rape culture for what it is!
  • It's A Fine Movie

    I watched it two days ago - overall it's an okay movie, a B-movie with some good qualities, it reminded some of the 70's and 80's B-movies, of women seeking for revenge against men. The main actress also played sister's character of Michael Fassbender in the movie "Shame" - she's good playing disturbed women.
  • If you like “Killing Eve” you’ll like “Promising Young Woman.”

    “Promising Young Woman” is intriguing and different. Don't be swayed by the trailer that makes you think this is purely a female revenge-flick. Because, well… it is a revenge flick, but it’s not what you’d expect. It’s much more than that. The humor is dark and there is a love story subplot as well. Carey Mulligan is great, and her performance is appropriately nominated for an academy award. If you like darkly comic shows like “Killing Eve” you’ll like “Promising Young Woman.”

    Must watch. Ignore all the other reviews.
  • If I could give it less stars I would

    This movie has so much potential but something went terribly wrong. The trailer sets you up for a promising thriller but the movie does not deliver. My favorite part was the ending because it meant the movie was finally over. Huge waste of money.
  • Incredible writing, incredible performances.

    Seriously an excellent movie. If it makes you uncomfortable, you should really take the time to think about why it makes you feel that way.
  • Decent but Disturbing

    By TBrimms
    It is not bad but definitely not what I expected at all after watching the previews. She is hurt after loss and trying to teach every "good" man a lesson, I can appreciate that. The end takes it to a whole new level but the very end makes you realize it was all thought out... but still disturbing.
  • Good for a nap
