Promising Young Woman ★★★★

Strong female character deftly portrayed by Carey Mulligan, important subject matter, quirky production design and great soundtrack.  Loved the ode to Night of the Hunter with scene of the film and song “Lullabye”.  LOVE HATE figure prominently here.  Love for Nina, hate for those who got away with hurting her.  

I was left feeling terribly empty with the ending of Cassie’s story. Maybe that was intended. These stories are not resolved so I guess that’s the uncomfortable truth.
