PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN FREE VIRTUAL SCREENINGS TO COLLEGE STUDENTS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH RAINN


Focus Features has co-partnered with RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, and Campus Circle to host free screenings for college students of the five time Academy Award®-nominated film PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN on April 15th, 2021. Focus, RAINN and Campus Circle hope to continue the conversation against sexual assault and violence on college campuses with the film as statistically 13% of all students experience sexual assault or rape during their time at school. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.4673 or online.rainn.org) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country.


Students can RSVP for the free screenings and post-show conversation Here, which are set to take place Thursday at 7:00 p.m. local time.

Said Heather Drevna, RAINN Vice President of communications: "Sexual violence can affect not only the survivor, but the people and communities around them. Promising Young Woman has sparked important conversations about the cultural response to sexual assault, healing, justice, and bystander accountability. We thank Focus Features for making Promising Young Woman available to college students, who are at increased risk of sexual violence, to continue this critical dialogue." 

 Campus Circle's publisher, Joy Calisoff says of the film, “Promising Young Woman is a dynamic and unique feminist revenge tale, complete with great characters that will knock you out of your seat.” 

From ground-breaking Academy Award®-nominated writer/director/producer Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve), PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN is a bold, new vision that has ignited a debate starring Academy Award® Nominee Carey Mulligan as ‘Cassie’; a wickedly smart but singularly focused woman, who in order to overcome events from her past, lives a double life by night. Following an unexpected encounter, Cassie is given the chance to right the wrongs of the past. Nominated for five Oscars and six BAFTAs, the film also stars Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Clancy Brown, Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, Chris Lowell, Molly Shannon, and Connie Britton

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children.
