Promising Young Woman - (2020)

Director: Emerald Fennell.

I really enjoyed watching Promising Young Woman. I think the screenplay is well written and the characters are interesting.

Clancy Brown & Jennifer Coolidge make for a good couple and I wanted to see more of them.

Laverne Cox plays a background character which was forgettable, unfortunately.

The film dives deeply into moral questions of guilt, revenge and chauvinism. It's not taking itself too seriously, and has a lot of good dark comedy and camp.

Things I didn't like about it are the main characters and their love story, cinematography, some cliche feminist moments.

There is also a thick layer of systematic white supremacy wrapping the entire film. If you ever wished to have a case study about the nuances of privilege within the upper middle class of white America, this is the film for you.

Verdict: 3.5 / 5 ★ - Nice.
