Movie Review: Promising Young Woman(2020)

I recently just watch one of the best movies I have seen in a while. Promising Young Woman, a movie that just feels right to me and it is living in my mind, and I like that. I know this film just came out over a year ago, and yet it feels so timely to me. The story fits with what is happening with today society, and it tells the story perfectly in a unique way.

PYW, is a film about a girl dealing with the trauma that happen to her friend who was a promising young woman. She confronts men who try to rape women when they think she is drunk, and she deals with them.

  Carey Mulligan is great as the lead. I believe everything that she is going through and she gives off emotions as being cold, and you can just feel it from her. This is a good thing. Emerald Fennell is the writer and director behind the film. The choices she makes with her direction makes the story feel smooth and everything flows great together. The music is a good key element to the film for me. It fits the mood and the tone for me, and it comes on at the right time.

There is something about this film that seems off, but it draws you in, and it takes you into the moment that the character is in. I cannot pinpoint it, but it is there.

The one thing I think is missing is just little bit more back story. We know something happen that night, but I would have liked more details about that. I would have liked more details about the boys. We do not meet the boys until close to the end of the film. This is a type of film that makes you want to be a writer. It makes me want to write more.

I would give this film a 7 out 10.
