Oct 21st : PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN
The 2022 PROXY Fall Series of outdoor cinema continues on Friday, October 21st at the PROXY Community Walk-in Theater with:
PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN
Directed by Emerald Fennell, 2020 [R]
“A deathly dark satire of gender politics.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
A story about loss, about revenge, and one that hits far too close to home for any woman. Promising Young Woman is a dark satire beautifully shot, centering on Cassie, a medical school dropout whose life has become defined by the horrific loss of her childhood friend. A reflection on a society that prioritizes the career of a promising young man over some ‘“alleged” incident in which both parties were probably drunk, Cassie takes it further, driving home the hypocrisy of the “nice guy” as they prey on the helpless and vulnerable until she switches from drop-down drunk to icy-sober, forcing them to confront their true intentions. Full of twists, this film forces the audience to feel uncomfortable while poised on the edge of their seat.
