Here is a short review of "Promising Young Woman" movie plot summary.
Cassie Thomas (Carey Mulligan) is a 30 year-old medical school dropout who lives with her parents in Ohio. Years earlier, her classmate Al Monroe (Chris Lowell) raped her best friend Nina Fisher; the school and legal system dropped the investigation, leading to her eventual suicide. Now Cassie spends her nights feigning drunkenness in clubs, allowing men to take her to their homes, and revealing her sobriety when they try to take advantage of her.
At the coffee shop where she works, Cassie is asked out by her former classmate, Ryan Cooper (Bo Burnham). On their date, he mentions that Al is getting married. Cassie begins a plan to exact revenge on those she holds responsible for Nina's rape. She meets Madison McPhee (Alison Brie) for lunch, an old friend who did not believe Nina was raped; she gets her drunk and hires a man to take Madison to a hotel room. The next day, Cassie listens to several voicemails from a distraught Madison, who has no memory of what happened.
Cassie targets Elizabeth Walker (Connie Britton), the medical school dean who dismissed Nina's case for lack of evidence. Cassie lures Elizabeth's teenage daughter Amber (Francisca Estevez) into her car by posing as a makeup artist for a pop band. Later, Cassie meets Walker under the pretense of resuming her education, and questions her about Nina's case. When Walker explains away her actions, Cassie tells her she dropped Amber off at a dorm room with drunk male students. Walker, terrified, apologizes for her inaction, and Cassie reveals Amber is safe at a diner.
Cassie forgets to meet Ryan for a date, disappointing him. That night, Cassie lures a man into taking her home. As they are walking out of the bar, they run into Ryan; hurt, Ryan leaves. The man realizes that Cassie is sober and recognizes her from when his friend picked her up.
