Promising Young Woman which also won two BAFTAs for Outstanding British Film and Original Screenplay, is a bold new vision that has ignited a debate. Carey Mulligan stars as ‘Cassie’; a wickedly smart but singularly focused woman, who in order to overcome events from her past lives a double life by night. Following an unexpected encounter, Cassie is given the chance to right the wrongs of the past.
