Promising Young Woman Amazes and Angers

Promising Young Woman is a feast overall, but one that leaves you questioning what part you ate that didn’t agree with you because something is off. There is a lot that works for the film—it’s visually arresting, directorially stunning, the soundtrack is beautiful and the acting, particularly by Carey Mulligan, is phenomenal. Unfortunately it falls short, especially at the end and incites feelings of pain, anger and questions as to the overall message of the film.
