I am a big fan of director Emerald Fennell and producer Margot Robbie. I watched the movie Promising Young Woman due to a recommendation from a friend, and it was a great pick. It is a dark and powerful movie featuring revenge comedy. It was a very bold thriller, and is definitely suited for mature audiences.
The description of Promising Young Woman, as stated on iTunes, is:
"From visionary director Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman...until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie's life is what it appears to be: she's wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she's living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story."
