Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will release Golden Globe nominee Promising Young Woman on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and on demand March 16. It is available now via digital sellthrough.
Promising Young Woman stars Carey Mulligan as Cassie, who everyone pegged for great things 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 avenge the wrongs of the past.
The cast also includes Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Clancy Brown, Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, Connie Britton, Molly Shannon, Sam Richardson, Max Greenfield, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Adam Brody.
Written and directed by Emerald Fennell (who served as showrunner on “Killing Eve” and plays Camilla on “The Crown”), Promising Young Woman earned $5.2 million in a limited theatrical run. The film has earned a multitude of Awards recognition, including recent Golden Globe nominations for Best Motion Picture — Drama, Best Actress for Mulligan, and Best Director and Best Screenplay for Fennell.
Home video bonus features include a commentary with Fennell; the featurette “A Promising Vision,” in which Fennell discusses her inspirations for creating the film; the featurette “Two-Sided Transformation,” a look at Mulligan in the role of Cassie and how filmmakers used wardrobe, hair and makeup to express the balance between light and dark; and the featurette “Balancing Act,” in which cast members discuss their unexpected reactions to the careful balance of levity and tragedy in Fennell’s take on female revenge.
