Writer / Director Emerald Fennell on Bo Burnham: “His normality and charm and the kind of life that he offers Cassie is so beguiling, obviously, we needed somebody really deeply charming and charismatic to play Ryan.”

“I really wanted to write a film about female revenge,” says Writer / Director Emerald Fennell.

"Generally, how I approach everything, is if I could imagine someone else playing the part and be all right with it, then I tend to not do it," Carey Mulligan says of her character in Emerald Fennell.

social | @vogueaustralia “I was prepping a job and we were going to start shooting in a couple of weeks,” shares May cover star, #CareyMulligan, of the moment the world went into lockdown due to #Covid19. “I feel like we’re all going through shock and trying to readjust. I just ordered a knitting set from Amazon so I could learn to knit. I went: ‘This is the time.’” Here, Mulligan poses for a special digital cover for the May issue of #Vogue, in which she was interviewed by #MargotRobbie about a new movie they worked on together called #PromisingYoungWoman.

social | @variety At the first test screening for #PromisingYoungWoman, writer-director Emerald Fennell wanted to sit in the back so she could gauge the audience’s reaction. When the lights went down, she was stricken with terror. “I thought, ‘No, oh, my gosh, what if everyone hates it?’” she remembers. “This is a nightmare!”⁠ ⁠ And so it was. During the film’s surprising and brutal climax, two audience members entered into a shouting match, with one of them yelling, “If you don’t like it, you don’t have to stay!” The other walked out. “That’s not what you necessarily want from your first test screening,” Fennell says.⁠ ⁠ At the link in bio, Fennell and her leading lady Carey Mulligan sit down to explain how they made the most audacious, feminist, movie of the year. ⁠ ⁠ 📸: @zoemcconnell⁠ ✍: Kate Aurthur and Matt Donnelly ⁠ ⁠ -----------------------------------⁠ ⁠ Carey Mulligan ⁠ styling: Nicky Yates⁠ makeup: Jo Baker⁠ hair: Halley Briske⁠ fashion: Galvan, Jimmy Choo⁠ jewelry: Sophie Billie Brahe⁠ ⁠ Emerald Fennell⁠ styling: Colomba Giacomini⁠ makeup: Lucy Wearin⁠g hair: Hair by Bjorn Krischker/ORIBE/frankagency⁠ fashion: Roland Mouret, Malone Souliers⁠

@promisingyoungwoman

“I think people are looking to see female characters do more than just answer a phone or look sexy in a bikini, so really, whether it’s an amazing assassin or a young woman who is trying to rectify something in her past, I think generally speaking, there is still regrettably a dearth of great stuff for women to do. So yeah, I think that’s what it is.” – Director #EmeraldFennell on writing strong female stories that resonate with audiences. ➡ for more #PromisingYoungWoman #Sundance portraits from @whowhatwear.-📸: @emilysotoThe Who What Wear x Free People Lounge
