Inspired by Emerald Fennell's revenge thriller Promising Young Woman, out in the UK on Sky Cinema TODAY, we present a mini-podcast dedicated to diving deep into the myriad of layers and themes of the film, written and directed by Emerald Fennell.
First up, a mostly spoiler-free discussion about the film and why it strikes such a chord, and how it has ignited a widespread conversation.
We discuss Carey Mulligan's performance and star persona, Cassie as the hero and the villain of her own story, grief as a corruption force, revenge films, the millenial aesthetic and the music.
The first part of the discussion is SPOILER-FREE.
The full spoilerific discussion begins from 1:24:35
