Cinema Capitol will present the black comedy PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN on select days from Friday, January 1-Monday, January 11.
PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN was written, directed, and produced by Emerald Fennell. It is the story of a woman named Cassie (Carey Mulligan), whose life is not what it appears to be. She was traumatized by a tragic event and, despite being smart and cunning, dropped out of medical school. Now she prioritizes revenge and lives a double life at night as she seeks out vengeance against those who cross her path.
CNN writes that PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN is “A darkly comic #MeToo revenge tale” and that “the film is elevated by Carey Mulligan’s mesmerizing performance.” The SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS also writes “Emerald Fennell’s outrageously entertaining feminist dark comedy is the year’s smartest and angriest thriller, a feminist-fueled revenge flick that shocks and awes and tosses subtlety to the wind.” The movie has a 93 percent rating on ROTTEN TOMATOES.
Popular within the film festival circuit, PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN was awarded “Best First Film” at the FLORIDA FILM CRITICS CIRCLE AWARDS, “Best Film” at the SUNSET FILM CIRCLE AWARDS, and “Most Promising Filmmaker” at the CHICAGO FILM CRITICS ASSOCIATION AWARDS.
PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN will play on select days from Friday, January 1-Monday, January 11. Show times are Fridays and Saturdays at 4:15 and 7:15, Sundays at 1:15 and 4:15, and Mondays at 7:15. Friday’s 4:15 and Sunday’s 1:15 shows will include captions for the hearing-impaired.
All patrons are required to wear masks for the duration of the movie, unless eating and/or drinking. Parties will be socially-distanced at least 6 feet apart.
