Carey Mulligan stars in Emerald Fennell's sharp and biting take on the revenge thriller for the #metoo era.
Carey Mulligan gives a wicked performance.
Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman with a bright future in medicine – until a traumatic event destroyed her future plans. Now, as a dropout spiralling between grief and rage, she is wickedly-smart and living a secret double life by night. An unexpected encounter gives Cassie the chance to right the wrongs of the past in this tantalising story of revenge.
Winner of the Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards, Promising Young Woman is the directorial debut from actor-turned-director Emerald Fennell, familiar to many as the face of Camilla Parker-Bowles from The Crown. Beginning her career in acting, Fennell's career took her behind the camera where her credits include Showrunner for Killing Eve.
A timely take on rape culture and revenge, the film subverts genre expectations at every turn. Premiering at Sundance in 2020, the film stars Carey Mulligan in a bitingly masterful performance, supported by a thoroughly cool cast including Bo Burnham, Laverne Cox, Jennifer Coolidge, Alison Brie and Adam Brody.
