Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

Do you think she matched her nails to her wig or the wig to her nails? 

I am rating this a half star higher than my first watch. It’s definitely better the second time around and in theaters. I have a lot of respect for Emerald Fennell as a first time feature director and writer. What I appreciate the most is the character building and development, that is what makes this piece stand out. 

I’m sure a lot of people have problems with the ending but my opinion of it is evolving. The more I think about all the deep layers it’s crossing the more fitting it is to the narrative itself. 

I want to swim in Carrie Mulligans brown eyes and fall asleep in her voice. 🤎
