This week on the pod, we conclude our two part discussion on Emerald Fennell’s Promising Young Woman. Could (or should) Cassie have had a happy future with Ryan? Did Cassie go too far? How does this film frame trauma and revenge? We get into it.
Emerald Fennell’s Promising Young Woman boldly subverts the rape/revenge genre – a type of film that has been historically dominated by male filmmakers. It also left us truly shooketh. This is a two part discussion, part two will be released in our next episode.
