We’re 88Nine’s Justin Barney and Milwaukee Film’s Kpolly. We’re buds, we like cinema — we’re Cinebuds.

Kpolly here. This week on Cinebuds we’re taking a look at the Oscar-nominated film “Promising Young Woman,” starring Carey Mulligan. She stars as a cunning and intelligent woman who seeks justice for a horrible encounter from her past.  

“Promising Young Woman”

The film has a ton of Oscar nominations, as well as Golden Globe acknowledgements and some from our friends across the pond, the BAFTAs. Even with all this critical acclaim, do WE like the film? That’s the real question. The question that almost NO ONE is asking!

(Spoiler: We may disagree on this one. That’s always fun.)

And I get a little overexcited about sharing what else I’ve been watching and lose my decorum a little bit. Truly uncivilized!
