Nerdette Recaps: ‘Promising Young Woman’

Authors Micaiah Johnson (The Space Between Worlds) and Carmen Maria Machado (In the Dream House, Her Body and Other Parties) join Nerdette host Greta Johnsen to discuss the Oscar-nominated film ‘Promising Young Woman.’

‘Promising Young Woman’ is a genre-busting rape revenge tale starring Carey Mulligan as a flinty avenger on the hunt for so-called ‘nice guys.’ It has been nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress. Bo Burnham, Connie Britton, Alison Brie, and Adam Brody also appear.
