Winky-face, “Promising Young Woman”
Without giving anything away, the last image in “Woman” is a spot-on dark emoticon on delayed send that arrives in Bo Burnham’s character’s phone: a winkyface that’s anything but cute. It’s a loud dun-dun in the “Law & Order” sense that lets us know that although the sender may be gone, she will never be forgotten. And vengeance is hers.
