Promising Young Women (15)

Film
Promising Young Women (15)
Carey Mulligan is a revelation in the lead role.  She is Cassie, a young woman who spends her night pretending to be drunk so that she can ensnare potential male abusers.  What has lead this "promising young woman" who could have been a doctor, down this dark path? While no Oscar was forthcoming for Carey Mulligan, British writer / director Emerald Fennell was a winner.  This is an astonishing film, one that will stay with you long after you have seen it.
