Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★½

Wow, what a movie! I was so excited to see this and I'm glad I liked it as much as I did. Definitely one of the best for 2020.

The movie knew what it was and it stayed consistent to that throughout. It was dark, it was funny, it made my skin crawl and at several points I couldn't contain myself and let out an involuntary "oh my god" from the pure disbelief of what was happening (in a good way!).
Carey Mulligan was fantastic, as was the rest of the cast. I appreciate that it didn't tip-toe around the subject matter, otherwise this wouldn't have worked at all.

Also, this movie will:
1. Make you feel extremely uncomfortable
2. Fill you with rage
3. Make you want to go buy a multi-coloured wig
