    Promising Young Woman

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I’ll preface this by saying there’s nothing wrong with the idea of ‘Promising Young Woman.’ There’s nothing wrong with making films that approach this subject matter. I’d even encourage filmmakers to make films in this vein; it’s largely untested cinematic territory and in the right hands a film like this could be phenomenal.

There’s just so many possibilities within the genre, so many different ideas and themes that can be conveyed and told in many different ways. The possibilities are endless, really. And within that greater genre, there are many smaller sub-genres, where more specific themes and motifs may…
