Could this film have come at a more perfect time? In the last few years, women have been frustrated with men more than ever and Carey Mulligan’s character is channeling all of our energy. In the film, her character “Cassie” narrates “Every week, I go to a club. I act like I’m too drunk to stand. And every week a nice guy comes over to see if I’m okay.”
For some of us, we’re familiar with this scenario and we know exactly what could happen. It isn’t always a pretty sight, but shortly after this, we recognize that “Cassie” is going to be just fine and is in total control.
Not only is the trailer intriguing and catching our curiosity, but it’s packed with an incredible cast. If you’re sensing some parallels between this and say… “Killing Eve,” it’s because the film is written and directed by Emerald Fennel – an executive producer and writer for the television series.
