What is Promising Young Woman About?
‘Promising Young Woman’ is a disarming dark comedy that follows the story of Cassie, a wickedly smart med-school drop-out who lives with her parents and leads a double life while nursing deep-seated trauma. By day, Cassie works at her friend’s cafe, but at night she likes to pick up morally questionable, predatorial men by pretending to be super drunk at the local bars. Her goal is not to blackmail or harm these men, but to watch them become increasingly uncomfortable as they realize that Cassie is fully sober and also become aware that they’re not really “nice guys” like they duped themselves into believing. These men that Cassie encounters are jolted into self-awareness before defensiveness seeps in and takes control. Slowly, the film reveals the real reason Cassie left med-school – a chilling tragedy concerning her best friend.
