Promising Young Woman Storyline
Promising Young Woman is a thriller and comedy genre film. It runs for a duration of almost two hours. The interesting and unique storyline of the film surrounds Cassie, who plays a clever, singularly centered woman who, at night, leads a double life in order to overcome events from her past. Cassie Thomas is a 30-year-old medical school dropout who now resides with her parents. Cassie’s best friend, Nina Fisher, was assaulted and raped by her classmate Al Monroe years before, and the school or legal system did not investigate the case. The situation led to her best friend’s suicide. Cassie, therefore still recovering from the past experience, now spent her nights faking drunkenness in bars, encouraging men to take her to their homes, and then exposing her sobriety as they attempt to assault her.
Promising Young Woman is clearly the provocative story of a woman reeling from the experience of her best friend’s sexual attack and how she cops with it. The film plot has been appreciated for how it is supportive of rape victims and inspiring different women all across the globe. Well, for the UK women too, pretty soon!
