Promising Young Woman ★★★

I understand the mixed reactions toward the ending, and I even felt conflicted initially.

I still think it’s a solid ending that drives the message of “tell their stories, stop covering up for actual pieces of garbage” really effectively. It’s undoubtedly a super depressing subject matter on its own standing, but the tone of the film and the catharsis that one can find from Cassie’s actions would ultimately amount to nothing but hopelessness had the film ended minutes earlier. 

This I also feels soooo strange to see nominated for a BP nominee, maybe even more than Get Out.
