Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★★

It knows what it wants to do and say, and it does and says it so resoundingly loud and clear. A powerfully layered story that doesn't lose its focus.

Part revenge, part thriller, part rom-com, part drama. And 100 percent Carey Mulligan magic. She showed so much range and it felt like she poured her soul into this performance. One scene in particular was just so memorable.

Seeing the pink "IIII" pop up on screen accompanied by a string cover of "Toxic" was pure cinema.

So many twists and turns that I couldn't keep up, but not so many that I got overwhelmed or bothered by it.

Anyway, it's been a long time since I've left a movie feeling this genuinely exhilarated.
