Promising Young Podcast #3 - Hell Hath No Fury Like a Critic Scorned

A mini-pod dedicated to Emerald Fennell's blistering revenge fairytale, Promising Young Woman. In this episode we discuss the divisive reaction, accolades and critiques the film has received.

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.

Writer/podcaster Jordan Crucchiola and The Final Girls co-founder Anna Bogutskaya discuss the divisive reaction to Promising Young Woman.

Everyone has an opinion about this film. It's created huge cultural conversation. We discuss the Variety incident, Promising Young Woman's triumph at the BAFTAs and the Academy Awards, and what has made it so divisive with critics and audiences alike. 

Be warned: this episode is SPOILERIFIC.
