Promising Young Woman received five Academy Award nominations: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay and Best Editing. I think it deserves every single one of them.
The creaky story leaves too much to be desired, Stay Out of the Attic a depraved psychotic freak-out built upon a weak foundation that’s constantly on the verge of collapse.
