Netflix has had no shortage of new movies this year, and some have generated considerable discussion. Right now, the movie on everyone’s lips with their eyes fixed is undoubtedly Luckiest Girl Alive.
Directed by Mike Barker and based on Jessica Knoll’s novel of the same name, the film hit Netflix on Friday, October 7, 2022 after a brief theatrical release and tells the story of New York Times Magazine editor Ani FaNelli, played by Mila Kunis.
Although her life seems perfect at first, things start to fall apart when a true crime documentary filmmaker asks her to talk about a traumatic incident from her past. So, what happened to Ani in Happiest Girl Alive?
***WARNING: MORE SPOILERS***
What happened to Ani in Luckiest Girl Alive?
It was eventually revealed that Ani was raped when she was only 14 years old.
During the film we begin to learn more about her and her background, we learn that she comes from a poor family and was on financial aid. She talks about the suffering and ridicule from the “trust kids” and her hostility stems from an incident where she was drugged and then sexually assaulted by Dean and later Liam.
Despite the shocking and distressing nature of what happened, the others did not believe her and made fun of Ani. After waking up in the bathroom to find herself being abused, Ani leaves the party and is found by Mr. Larson. She trips and falls into his arms and he takes her back to his house.
“We want people to fully understand the depth”
Writer/screenwriter Jessica Knoll recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the project and why they decided not to shy away from presenting the ambush scenes to the audience:
“As for the ambush scene, I think the conversations with Mike. [Barker] and I really wanted people to fully understand the depth of this character and the rage of this woman. In some of the current situations, she’s not necessarily ‘likeable’ and who she is and what her goals are and how she thinks about things.”
She continued: “I think we needed the audience to really understand where it came from. I don’t think you’ll understand unless you’re really true to how humiliating and how difficult a time she went through. So it was about making sure we really captured that so you understood this woman in her current life.”
