Promising Young Woman - 2020 - 7/10

Cassie is on a mission, perhaps vendetta would be more accurate.
She is out to intimidate and hopefully correct males who prey on intoxicated, vulnerable females.
The background and reasons play out in slow burn, “correct” film.
To its credit, the film does not strike for the jugular of revenge, which would be exploitation.
Powerful acting throughout, still the premise rang false for me.
By and large, misbehavior from influential figures (usually male) is unchecked in most societies.
Cassie’s decade long trajectory may sadden those who recognize a wasted life, blighted by revenge.
