Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

hmmm this was my most anticipated watch for awhile and i wanted it to be better. however i do think it’s so clever and enjoyed it immensely. 

the casting really stood out to me outside of (the always amazing) carey mulligan and i read a lot about the deliberate thought and care from the casting team and their choices to pull hollywood Nice Guys (christopher mintz-plasse, bo burnham, max greenfield, sam richardson, etc) into these evil roles. i really appreciated that detail bc it really exists beyond the scope of the movie. 

i was also so happy to see jennifer coolidge return to the role she knows best: milf

the soundtrack also banged hellloooooo paris hilton and sinister strings version of toxic
