Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★

I know the final act has some divided on the film's ability to resonate with the central themes of memory, privilege, and trauma, but it more than stuck the landing for me. I'll take something bold and purposeful over boring and predictable any day of the week. A searing indictment of patriarchal rape culture and a devastating portrait of loss, suffused with dark humour and great performances from Mulligan and Burnham. It's sad and messy, but then again, so is real life.
