Let’s get one thing straight from the start: Emerald Fennell’s promising young woman is not the movie you think it is. Yes, it’s a revenge story, but not in a conventional sense. Yes, it’s a thriller, but with twists and turns that you can’t expect. Yes, it’s a dark comedy, but you don’t know how far it will go for a sinister punch line. I can say with complete confidence that Promising Young Woman is not what you think it is because there are no previous films like this one. If he pulls you in and lets your jaw drop, you will find that you see him seeing something special and game changing from talent that deserves full credit for what has been achieved.
