Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ½

#girlboss! after the shock wore off, i found that this ending left a terrible taste in my mouth. i feel like the concept of female revenge was handled so poorly here and the more i think about it the more frustrated i get. i will say that i was fully engrossed in the story, and carey mulligan is an absolute star. plus that string arrangement of toxic gave me chills! but this movie is not the sickly sweet badass femme fatale revenge thriller it wants to present itself as.

edit: every time i come back to this review i end up lowering my rating half a star. fuck this movie
