Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★½

an arena of scarecrows to throw water balloons at. every line is a pithy tweet by a sixteen year old (epic girl boss PWNAGE!) and tonally reprehensible, super sterile, no schlock or wit or risk save for one minor and lightly gutsy twist. every character speaks like they are an enormous paintbrush illustrating a sign to the theme. the soundtrack bastardizes sky ferreira and charli xcx. there is not one emotion to be felt. it sucks and carey's performance is just okay
