Promising young woman

A sharp and shocking drama, Carey Mulligan shines as Cassie, who leads a double life at night punishing men in memory of her late friend Nina. With a star-studded cast including Bo Burnham and Max Greenfield, this new Golden Globe-nominated film is a must-see.


The witch of love
