Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★

Mulligan and Burnham are good and do their best with the material but I was really let down by this. 


I liked the premise a lot but found it was squandered in both execution and development. Very hollow and vapid with a sheen of style coating everything trying to cover up said vapidness. 


Nothing feels developed or explored enough, especially the Nina “character” (quotes because she doesn’t feel like a character, just a device that’s never seen on screen and just moves the story along) The film attempts to tackle heavy themes but doesn’t really have anything profound to say


And the tone switch near the end of the film and the attempt at comedy was totally jarring and not fitting with the rest of the movie


Honestly it just left a bad taste in my mouth, especially that jaw dropping (in a bad way) ending
