Have you ever looked at a person and thought to yourself that they had the perfect life and you wished yours could be like theirs? Well, Netflix film Luckiest Girl Alive is about to remind us that looks can be deceiving.
Based on the book of the same name by Jessica Knoll, Luckiest Girl Alive tells the story of Ani FaNelli (Mila Kunis) “a sharp-tongued New Yorker who appears to have it all: a sought-after position at a glossy magazine, a killer wardrobe, and a dream Nantucket wedding on the horizon. But when the director of a crime documentary invites her to tell her side of the shocking incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Brentley School, Ani is forced to confront a dark truth that threatens to unravel her meticulously crafted life.”
If you read our piece on Kunis being cast in the lead, then you already know how much our HBIC loves this book. I myself haven’t read it yet but after seeing the trailer and knowing Kunis is playing Ani, it has me planning to grab a copy. It’s been a while since she’s graced our screens so we’re looking forward to seeing her in this.
“Sometimes I feel like a wind-up doll. Turn my key, and I will tell you exactly what you want to hear.”
This film looks like it’s going to be an intense and emotional rollercoaster. And its definitely a reminder that no matter what we do somehow our past always catches up to us. We hope that Luckiest Girl Alive is as good as it looks because we’re here for the ride.
Our hope is that people watch it and realize that though a person may look and seem like they have everything together, they could be dealing with something we know absolutely nothing about. We also hope it reminds people they don’t have to feel alone when those traumatic events of the past try to creep in and ruin your future.
