Spoiler alert! The post below discusses the key plot points of the new “Luckiest Girl Alive” movie, so watch out if you haven’t watched it yet.

Mila Kunis’ new movie is #1 on Netflix. However, he divides the audience in two with a controversial scene.

Based on author Jessica Knoll’s 2015 book of the same name, “Luckiest Girl Alive” follows Ani FaNelli (Kunis), a 14-year-old gang-raped and seemingly perfect and reunited New Yorker who survives a high school shooting. – it begins to dissolve. All her life she was accused as a victim by her own mother, shamed by her classmates by the slut, and He had to quietly take responsibility for his own attack.

Kunis’ latest film garnered widespread support for its sobering portrayal of the trauma of rape that Knoll wrote based on her own experience. But critics questioned the necessity of not one, but three graphic rape scenes.

“Don’t watch Luckiest Girl Alive. The scenes are way too triggering.” User @MimieLaushi warned.

“I felt uncomfortable in part of the movie, and rightfully so, because we should be uncomfortable blaming the victims for what happened.” another user wrote @lalakaris.

Recreating rape on screen has long been controversial: “Game of Thrones” and, more recently, Netflix’s “Blonde” have faced backlash for depictions of what it calls “exploitation” of sexual violence. But can these scenes be of educational value if the goal is to accurately portray a survivor’s experience?
