Carey Mulligan’s turn as vengeful Cassie has received rave reviews from the critics. Even though this is a relatively new release, you can watch Promising Young Woman online from your couch.

Promising Young Woman follows Cassandra, whose life has gone astray due to a tragedy in her past. She’s aimless, nearly 30, living at home with her parents and a medical school dropout. Despite pressure from those around her, she stays ambition-less and bored.

When she isn’t working at the coffee shop with her manager (Laverne Cox), she spends her time at bars, dangling herself as prey to men. Cassie pretends to pass out in the bar drunk, and men try to look decent by taking her home. When whatever guy tries to take advantage of her, she snaps awake, stone-cold sober to deliver them a reminder about consent. She has a reason as to why her sole focus is on this revenge plot, but you can watch the movie to find out why.

Alison Brie, Bo Burnham, Adam Brody Connie Britton, Alfred Molina and Christopher Lowell also appear in the film.

Promising Young Woman is the splashy directorial debut of Emerald Fennell. She wrote for the series Killing Eve, so it’s not surprising that she navigates dark comedy and difficult subjects deftly. The Crown fans might also recognize Fennell, because she played Camilla Parker Bowles. The movie is produced by Margot Robbie’s production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. LuckyChap has also produced I, Tonya and Birds of Prey.
