Luckiest Girl Alive Mila Kunis Praised For navigating trauma PTSD

This article contains references to sexual assault.

Luckiest Girl Alive, starring the terrific Mila Kunis, finally hit Netflix, and it has got everyone talking about its rare insight into the world of post-traumatic stress sustained from sexual assault.

The mystery drama, adapted from Jessica Knoll’s bestselling 2015 novel, sees That’ 70s Show star Mila take on the role of Ani FaNelli, a New Yorker who seems to have it all. She has a high-profile, respectable job at the publication, The Women’s Bible, spends her free time attending fitness classes and is set to marry her old-money fiancé Luke (American Horror Story‘s Finn Wittrock).

However, beneath the surface, she struggles with the trauma of being sexually assaulted as a teenager just before a mass shooting at her school. To make matters worse, one of the teen boys who assaulted her accused her of being somehow involved in the shooting and sticks to his story as he lobbies for gun reform over the years.

While we’ll save the massive spoilers and let you watch Luckiest Girl Alive for yourself to see how events unfold, the depictions of sexual assault during the film were visually unflinching and graphic. However, viewers were quick to praise Mila for how she navigated and brought to life the trauma and PTSD of the main character.

One viewer tweeted: “This was such a powerful and important film and Mila did an incredible job wow. It had some painfully accurate moments exploring trauma & grief. The transitions between teen Ani and adult Ani were excellent. The ending was perfect. I loved it. Amazing film #LuckiestGirlAlive.”
