About the Event
A special opportunity for WFTV members to receive a screening link to watch Academy Award® nominated and BAFTA winning, Promising Young Woman.
From ground-breaking Academy Award® nominated writer/director/producer Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve), Promising Young Woman is a bold, new vision that has ignited a debate starring Academy Award® Nominee Carey Mulligan as ‘Cassie’; a wickedly smart but singularly focused woman, who in order to overcome events from her past, lives a double life by night. Following an unexpected encounter, Cassie is given the chance to right the wrongs of the past. Nominated for 5 Oscars and 6 BAFTAs, the film also stars Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Clancy Brown, Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, Chris Lowell, Molly Shannon, and Connie Britton.
Unique screening links to watch Promising Young Woman are distributed by Focus Features. WFTV members will receive an individual screening link to watch the film by email. Screening links are not automatically generated and can take up to 72 working hours to receive. One screening link request per member.
