Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★

I didn’t know anything about this movie going in; I didn’t watch any trailers or anything because I wanted to go in blind. I would suggest doing the same to anyone who can because this movie is nuts. By far one of the boldest films of the year, it really doesn’t hold anything back.

Carey Mulligan is really great, but I also want to point out how perfect Bo Burnham’s casting is. I can’t get into it without spoilers but some of the movie just would not have worked nearly as well if it was somebody else.

It also just looks really cool. The cinematography is awesome and the colors are really rich and vibrant. Definitely exceeded my expectations, which were already a little high because of the buzz it’s getting.

Side-note: I didn’t look at the full cast either, you should have seen my face when McLovin and Mr. Krabs showed up.
