Mila Kunis stars in it The luckiest girl alive, a Netflix movie adapting a novel by Jessica Knoll. If one does not read the book (which is sometimes graphic) and only Watch the trailerone would be forgiven for assuming this could be a mix of romantic dramas the girl is gone-esque tones. (This is not the case). The trailer remains very vague and only alludes to a high school “accident” that Mila’s character, Tiffany Vanelli (her name isn’t the source for the drama, could have been part of). She restyles herself as a New York-based writer (Annie) with a flamboyant exterior and a wealthy fiancé (Vin Wittrock).
The trailer seems to promise a touching heroine who will light up the world by making something for herself by gaining a life of dreams that, most likely, no one expected she could achieve. Here’s the trailer because it really does seem to promise something different than what the movie does.
No operation warning for The luckiest girl alive before it streams on Netflix. And let’s just say that Mila’s character is a survivor. You didn’t just survive through a teenage mass shooting (Scott McEnery She plays her teacher, a really good guy) but also multiple rapes by her classmates. Annie got sick from an eating disorder too, but the sexual assault scenes are disturbing, man, as well as PTSD from everything Annie went through as a teen.
Many social media users seem to enjoy the movie in general, but they also have a real problem with the movie’s surprise players, and they claim Netflix for their failure to be more upfront about the movie’s subject matter.
Went to Luckiest Girl Alive thinking it was going to be a Gone Girl type thriller, but it was actually a quietly brutal movie about rape and PTSD so be careful to watch it if it excites you

Netflix really dropped the ball when it didn’t add a giant warning to Luckiest Girl Alive

Netflix didn’t bother giving a trigger warning, but I will. Don’t watch Luckiest Girl Alive if you’re just expecting a movie about a school shooting. There are very graphic depictions of SA as a major plot point.

I thought I missed the warning about the luckiest girl alive, but now reading the tweets, there was no TW about SA, right? Anyway kill this panic.

The luckiest girl alive was the perfect picture of what it means to be a rape victim.
Having said that, as a victim, you absolutely need a trigger warning. I had to go a little further and while it comes to the school shooting, it’s still a graphic depiction of the assault. https://t.co/NSNHsCx99Z

The luckiest girl alive should come up with some kind of sexual assault warning. I’m not even a sexual assault survivor but I ended up shivering and covering my eyes and ears during that scene. the worst. terrible. I still think about abt the next day.
