“It’s funny, because the reaction I first had when I read the script was, ‘This is soooo romantic,’ ” Mulligan adds of her first impression of the multi-layered story. “There’s this gorgeous ’80s rom-com in there, with this really believable relationship in the middle of it.”
And while most wouldn’t really label the film a romantic comedy (and Mulligan’s filmography doesn’t include one), she’s completely on board if Richard Curtis — who wrote and directed romance-genre classics like Love Actually and About Time — gives her a call.

Promising Young Woman is slated for a U.S. release on April 17.
