While she has received a fair amount of critical acclaim over her 15 year career, I still feel Carey Mulligan is an often underappreciated actress. A quick look over her filmography reveals a fairly diverse selection of roles. But her new film “Promising Young Woman” sees her tackling something unlike anything she has played before and I’m pretty excited.
The first trailer for the film dropped recently and it leaves quite the impression. It looks to be putting a unique spin on the revenge thriller genre and it comes from first time writer/director Emerald Fennell. Mulligan seems to be exploring some pretty dark territory but there also seems to be a touch of pitch black humor as well. I’m really anxious to see how this thing turns out.
“Promising Young Women” is set to debut at Sundance in January. Then look for it to hit theaters April 17, 2020. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
I saw this a few days ago and wow… I really want to see this. It looks fucking insane but for all of the good reasons. Plus, to see Carey take a dip into something darker. That is worth the price of admission.
I’m all over it too. I really like Mulligan. Did you ever see Wildlife.
It was on Showtime but I never found the time nor the space on my DVR hard drive to see it. I hope to as soon as possible but lately it’s been sort of impossible to find the time to watch film these days.
It ended up in my Top 5 from last year.
Oh yes I’ll do this, she’s such a good actress, I hope this boosts her up the pecking order, this would normally go to Margot Robbie I think. Love the Brittany Spears ‘Toxic’ redo on violin 🙂
Yes! That “Toxic” variation really fits the trailer. I’m with you, give Mulligan the boost she deserves. Did you see Wildlife from last year?
No, if it’s on Netflix though ….:D
Hmmm, I’m not sure if it is. It seems most people missed it but it ended up being pretty high up on my top 10 list last year. Worth checking Netflix.
