From visionary director Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman...until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie's life is what it appears to be: she's wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she's living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.


  • A truly good film, finally!

    Must watch. Ignore all the other reviews.
  • If I could give it less stars I would

    By The Rugged Ginger
    This movie has so much potential but something went terribly wrong. The trailer sets you up for a promising thriller but the movie does not deliver. My favorite part was the ending because it meant the movie was finally over. Huge waste of money.
  • Incredible writing, incredible performances.

    Seriously an excellent movie. If it makes you uncomfortable, you should really take the time to think about why it makes you feel that way.
  • Decent but Disturbing

    By TBrimms
    It is not bad but definitely not what I expected at all after watching the previews. She is hurt after loss and trying to teach every "good" man a lesson, I can appreciate that. The end takes it to a whole new level but the very end makes you realize it was all thought out... but still disturbing.

    Incredibly boring
  • Best film of the year!

    Can’t stop thinking about it
  • A Masterpiece

    By ZeppoFosterKane
    Best Film of the year and top-shelf cinema: solidly, A thinking person’s movie. It rivals Fargo and American Psycho when it comes to a near-perfect balance of dark comedy and dramatic atmosphere.
  • Excellent movie, if you are intelligent

    By evemama
    Very good movie, with one of the best performances of the year. It is a movie that stays with you long after it has ended. A necessary indictment of “nice guy” culture that allows predators free rein to destroy countless lives. The end was a punch in the gut......
  • Entertaining even though a little feminist

    By Matt __ M
    A little feminist because every man in the movie under 50 except the cops at the very end were guilty, and so the implication is that all men are guilty. Not all men are like that!! And the movie seems to advocate that a woman’s word alone should be used as evidence, which unfortunately, should obviously never be the case!! But it was entertaining and well done.
  • Wow
