A young woman (Carey Mulligan) tries to right a wrong from her past by taking revenge on predatory men.

Written and directed by Emerald Fennell, showrunner of Killing Eve season two.

This is the Mulligan show, though, and she proves every bit at home with humour as she is with serious drama.

Written and directed by Killing Eve showrunner Emerald Fennell, Promising Young Woman is not always surefooted in its style or substance, but Mulligan is consistently riveting throughout.

Promising Young Woman is as confident as its protagonist, a film that's willing to be a little messy and inconsistent.

Fennell's film is a vibrant, stylistically precise piece of work, but the sentiments it conveys don't feel examined. It's an acceleration off a cliff when what you'd really like to see is some kind of road forward, no matter how rough.

The film around her has its flaws but [Mulligan has] never been better, fulfilling her initial promise as a young actor and then some.

Emerald Fennell's debut feature is so razor sharp you'll have to check yourself for wounds.

Fennell's film could be called a polemic, but dramatically it's so sharply and boldly laid out that its narrative shocks rule the day. It's jolting to witness how it refuses to let anyone off the hook.
