Promising Young Woman (2020)
Carey Mulligan is a revelation in this delightfully twisted revenge thriller that poses the question – do you want your toxic masculinity with sprinkles or chopped nuts?
From the ultra-feminine rawness and pitch-black humor, to a central story that’s sure to spark some impassioned post-watch discussion, we’re delighted to make this extraordinary film our final Drafthouse Recommends of 2020.
Also starring Bo Burnham, Laverne Cox, and Jennifer Coolidge, PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN is the incendiary, yet whimsical take you never, ever thought you needed. But guess what, you do. Just like you’d need the entire Black Flag catalogue covered by Taylor Swift; a SAW remake starring Meg Ryan in a pert, bone-white cardigan; or a perfectly manicured hand with a middle finger flipped in the direction of the notion that no good deed, be it a favor from a male coworker or a drink from a stranger, should go unsexed. Because, c’mon, these men are nice.
