Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★★

This is at turns a silent scream and a clever satire, one that is deeply resonant for society that has long given voice to promising young men, but much less their female counterparts when it comes to sexual assault. As many have noted, Carey Mulligan is superb as an avenging angel who is also lost following a catastrophic event in her life, moving from fragility to strength in a flash. And of course there's "that scene" which is enormously powerful as it is upsetting and not easily forgotten.
