Interview by Paul Salfen
Paul Salfen interviews Golden Globe® and Emmy®-nominated director/writer/producer, EMERALD FENNELL, in the Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay categories for her incredibly poignant directorial feature film debut, PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN, which she also wrote. The film addresses violence against women that has become commonplace in our culture and which are absolutely not acceptable.
The film premiered at Sundance to overwhelming critical acclaim and in an exceedingly competitive awards landscape Emerald and PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN have remained top of mind. The press have voiced their enthusiasm and fans have expressed excitement for a feminist, timely take on the revenge genre. Emerald is a standout, masterfully tackling important issues from script to screen and even music, as she also produced the soundtrack.
