Are you ready to watch your favorite movie of 2021 less than a month into the new year? Well, ready or not, Promising Young Woman is headed to digital this Friday. Written and directed by Emerald Fennell, Promising Young Woman stars Carey Mulligan as a med-school drop-out named Cassie Thomas, who has a plan to get revenge on everyone who was complicit in the rape of her late friend, Nina. The impressive supporting cast includes Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Clancy Brown, Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, and Connie Britton, just to name a few.
