Promising Young Woman

From the previews I was not looking forward to “Promising Young Woman”. It stars Carey Mulligan, who has never impressed me, and it seemed like just another revenge/slasher film. I read some of the reviews and they were glowing, so I decided to give it a shot. Boy was I surprised. First it is not a slasher movie, but it does involve revenge. The main character is a medical school drop out who seems to be drifting through life after her best friend dies. She seeks her revenge on men by acting blind, stinking drunk and letting them take her home, only to sober up. There are a lot of plot twists and the acting is outstanding. And this is Carey Mulligan’s best performance. This is one of those movies that makes you think about what happened after its over. It is different and entertaining.
