Carey Mulligan on Why New Film ‘Promising Young Woman’ Strikes a Nerve | People


Carey Mulligan hopes her buzzed-about new film ‘Promising Young Woman’ will move audiences to laugh, cry and cringe.

“I like to play parts where on the page, I can’t quite figure them out,” Carey Mulligan tells PEOPLE.

Written and directed by Emerald Fennell (The Crown, Killing Eve), the provocative #MeToo-era revenge thriller revolves around Cassie (Mulligan), a med school dropout who experiences a personal tragedy that moves her to exact vengeance against rapists, misogynist men and those who protect them.
