I do not usually watch thriller genre movies preferring horror anytime. But this Promising Young Woman is a gripping movie that is really worth the running time.
In essence it is about revenge. Executed in a smart and effective way, you’ll grow to love the main actress and therefore feel sorry for what happened to the protagonist at the end of the movie. So it is not the rape-me-and-I-kill-you movie that you normally find in the I Spit On Your Grave type. This is way more intelligent.
Surprisingly for a suspense triller type, this movie carries a lot of positive message eg friendship, compassion, letting go, loyalty and justice. I would certainly recommend this movie an thumbs up to the 35 year old Carey Muligen for her brilliant performance.
