Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★

The film itself is not bad but there is some major inconsistencies and the script definitely needed at least 2 more read throughs and edits to work out the kinks. 

I’m also torn on the entire motivation of the main character. Part of me gets the idea of being so enraged in someone else’s pain that you go to length’s to pay back the people who hurt them but doesn’t that also undermine the strength that many survivors of violence gain? 

There’s also the fact that Laverne Cox gets like a TOTAL of three minutes of screen time (if that). What a waste because she is too ridiculously talented to be made into some underdeveloped character who works as a coffee shop manager and that’s it.
