Powerful performance by Carrey Mulligan, and even though the story seems straight forward at first, it has it's moments, good cinematography. Much recommended.

This movie was so good untill the final act. A touching vengeance movie. Is that a new genre? But it’s also about obsessing and be able to recover from trauma.

I really liked this movie. Absolutely worth watching! Very relevant and shows how vulnerable women are in today’s society. There were several plot holes, which is why I only gave it 8.... BUT the colours were great, and there was a hint of Tarantino in there. The music was perfect, remixes of known songs, sung by women about men. It makes you think, and you go through several emotions while watching this. I really recommend everybody to see this movie 🎥

Super intense film covering a difficult subject that really had me on edge the whole way through. A revenge story that is unsettling, but in doing so places it with other revenge greats like OldBoy. I can see why people might not like it but personally, I think this film tells an important narrative and explores the "boys will be boys" cliché with style (the music choices and cinematography were perfection).

It’s not the best film but scarily accurate in places. It’s cleverly constructed and I feel the the lack of investment in the male characters might have been a choice? Can be likened to hard candy or kill Bill I dislike all the press reviews I’ve seen for this except for Alfred Molina’s in Variety.

I didn't enjoy this, nearly turned off half way through. However it has a great ending. Uncomfortable watching but maybe that's the point..

A film that everyone should see for so many reasons. Beautiful cinematography, great story, glorious score and soundtrack, twists and turns and revenge. What more could you want.

Wow just wow. This movie is amazing. It is so relevant today. What happens in this movie is any father's nightmare. Really hope that you actually do watch this movie. Carey Mulligan delivers an absolute top performance. She must be one of the lead contenders for this year's Oscar's. Great script with amazing dialogues and plot twists. I just pulled me and had me at the edge of my seat at the end.

Yea, ok, my week would have been better not watching this. Kinda gross revenge porn with a lot of tropes. Has its moments, but the dark subject matter (maybe intentionally) blurs out any character growth.

A boldly provocative, timely thriller, Promising Young Woman is an auspicious feature debut for writer-director Emerald Fennell -- and a career highlight for Carey Mulligan.
