"Writer-director-producer Emerald Fennell (who is also an actor and plays Camilla Parker Bowles on The Crown) delivers a sensational first feature film with this well-crafted, bold, visually stunning and emotionally resonant gem." —Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
From groundbreaking director Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman...until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.
