Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★½

I had high hopes only to find them undermined by how this turned out to be: a rape-revenge thriller that is surprisingly tame on the revenge part considering the severe level of psychological trauma and violence inflicted upon the female characters while the men only get a talking to. Features great performances with a ton of cameos, an awesome soundtrack, and a denouement that might just be a little too neat for its own sake and so much for a revenge fantasy, it surely leaves a lot to be desired. Wish there were more bites to it instead of flashy pink aesthetics.
