Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★

This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

This review may contain spoilers.

Major props for casting such a likable guy as the exception to the rule only to show that no man is immune to the norms established in our culture’s long-standing conspiracy against women.

Additional props for not saving the whistleblower from the inevitable blowback of such flagrant challenges to the status quo. 

Final props for populating the film with garden-variety “half-decent” guys that have easily justified their culturally-sanctioned behavior, rather than depending on characters outside the bounds who know they are transgressing.
