"Promising Young Woman," a provocative and uncompromising dark drama.
Nov 4, 2021
Given the message-burdened first-time script, the actors do justice to their most predictable characters, crafted by Fennell to mirror predictable viewers' predictably puzzled responses.

This is a superb feature. Indeed, it feels a necessary one.

In a strange combination of drama and satire, I didn't find Promising Young Woman to be either revolutionary, nor funny. It lacked the courage to show the true horrors behind its truth. Mulligan is tremendous. [Full review in Spanish]

It's certainly not everyone's cup of tea, and is perhaps not as original as it thinks it is. However, as a thriller exploring what happens when one decides to take justice into their own hands, it's strikingly unforgettable.

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.

Fully aflame of that hottest burning of fires: Righteous indignation.

Promising Young Woman shows how an egregious assault is not so dissimilar from the ubiquitous less explicit assaults comprising what we often label 'seduction.'

Fennell and Mulligan deliver what they promise, from the design and performances to the tension and provocation.

Fennell pushes then questions her avenging angel metaphor, in a bold and funny film that is more about the complicity of good people than the wickedness of bad ones.

Wrapped in vivacious rom-com feels, this is an ancient tale of womanhood desecrated (...) a female gaze extraordinaire, on men who abuse trust, and women who enable them.

Mulligan is fantastic and heartbreaking as Cassie.

Both blatant and subtle in the points it makes, Promising Young Woman stands tall as a troubling and rewarding film.

The movie's message here is subtle, yet powerful. [Full review in Spanish]

This taut thriller dismantles the genre's plot structures and cunningly rebuilds them to ramp up the shock factor.

Not since "Hard Candy" have I enjoyed such an enticing revenge story. Mulligan is at her best, showing such complex emotions. She varies from cold-hearted to heartbreaking.

Fennell has delivered an aesthetically astute directorial debut that's packed with verve - and hides an important message just beneath its pastel-coloured shell.

It is important that fantasy narratives help us imagine other possible worlds. And that's why Promising Young Woman is so disappointing. [Full Review in Spanish]

"Promising Young Woman" fits perfectly in an Oscars season that has wanted to find a commitment to the troubled times we live in. [Full Review in Spanish]

Promising Young Woman's ambiguities seem trite and too easily palatable.
