Promising Young Woman is Altrincham Film Club’s chosen film for Thursday 30th September.

Cassie works in a coffee shop by day, by night she leads a secret double life with revenge on her mind, until crucial evidence gives Cassie a chance to right all the wrongs from the past…

"Carey Mulligan is at her ice-cold best as a scheming sociopath in this fearless unpicking of entitlement and victimhood." 5 stars, Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.
