Promising Young Woman (out Jan 7) is the story of a 30-year-old woman who, following the death of her best friend several years ago, seeks vengeance against sleazy men. It's loaded with interesting, provocative ideas but the contrived nature of the storyline makes it difficult to fully buy into. That said, kudos to writer-director Emerald Fennell and actor Carey Mulligan for creating such an intriguing character. Grade: B.
