Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

I have mixed feelings on this one. I think the theme in itself is so important and it's no question we need to see more films tackling rape culture up close and personal. The acting is great, Carey and Bo have great chemistry. The beginning was so strong too! Ugh I really do like so much about this movie

Fuck that ending though. I actually like the twist on Ryan's character, and it really drives the point that this bullshit is so engrained in society that everyone has some sort of unfortunate connection to these atrocities no matter what that may be. BUT THE COPS JUST MAGICALLY FIX EVERYTHING???? That ruined it for me.

But now I'm confused... was the ending supposed to make me angry? Was that the point of it all?? WHAT'S GOING ON???
