It's a harsh film, rough and ready and daring as hell.
January 29, 2021
There are some very good performances throughout the film, but make no mistake - this is the Carey Mulligan show.
January 29, 2021
Mulligan offers perhaps the standout performance of her distinguished career.
January 29, 2021
A film with a strange tone, but a clear-cut point of view. It's social commentary as art and it works.
January 29, 2021
Bold, brave, and bracing.

The result is a mix of shock and awe. This Promising Young Woman is going to rock your world.

Promising Young Woman is not only beautiful, fun, and never boring, it tells an important story that kicks everything movies told us about sex and its relationship with violence in the teeth. It's the most fun you'll have while shivering with angst.
January 27, 2021
Promising Young Woman isn't interested in processing trauma or really any shades of grey that don't fit the bubble gum colour scheme
January 27, 2021
Oscar-worthy movies usually have a different flavor than Promising Young Woman, but there's so much to appreciate about it that it's easy put it among the best movies of the year.
January 26, 2021
Undergirded by an unforgettable soundtrack, deliciously colorful cinematography, and a strong supporting cast, it puts Fennell on the map as a major new voice.
January 26, 2021
Promising Young Woman came out of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival with hype to burn. It lives up to the buzz.
January 23, 2021
A genuinely great movie that's full of surprises, well-placed comedy, and a ton of satisfying and shocking moments in what is a fabulous debut offering from Emerald Fennell.
January 22, 2021
Promising Young Woman has some frustrating inconsistencies but it presents a fresh female perspective and marks a very promising debut for Fennell.
January 22, 2021
"A career-defining performance from Mulligan and phenomenal writing and stylish direction from Fennell in her feature debut."
January 22, 2021
In filmmaker Emerald Fennell's diabolically funny takedown of toxic masculinity, Carey Mulligan gives a dynamite performance that should make her a frontrunner in the Oscar race for Best Actress.
January 22, 2021
Promising Young Woman, then, unabashedly offers the bitch-in-sheep's-clothing trope. In its intentionality, it works.
January 22, 2021
The directorial debut shines a bright, unflattering and unfaltering light on rape culture.
January 21, 2021
A promising young movie, but it kept stopping short of fully delivering on it...still very enjoyable, especially by the bombshell third act.
January 21, 2021
What caught me off-guard was how much the mood shifts...it's on my list of favorite movies this year and I truly didn't know what they were gonna do with this.
January 21, 2021
It's slick, engaging and entertaining. And it has a soundtrack full of pop bangers. It's also a tight, twisty piece of storytelling with a hell of a final (technically fourth) act that might lead to debate.
