Promising Young Podcast #1 - A Woman's Worst Nightmare

A mini-pod dedicated to Emerald Fennell's blistering revenge fairytale, Promising Young Woman. The first episode is a (mostly) spoiler-free in-depth review.

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.

Featuring writer/podcaster Jordan Crucchiola, The Independent's Chief Film Critic Clarisse Loughrey, and is produced and presented by Anna Bogutskaya.

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
