Netflix should add trigger warnings to Lucky Girl Alive, say fans

"Luckiest Girl Alive" was recently released on Netflix and has already attracted a lot of attention since it was released. There are several aspects of the film that depict the horrors of post-traumatic stress disorder that develops after a victim is se*ually assaulted and chooses to avoid discussing the incident.

The film is an adaptation of Jessica Knoll's bestseller of the same name, a novel that is also her debut work, and the main role is played by Mila Kunis. In the drama, an established NYC magazine reporter named Ani FaNelli (Kunis) experiences a harrowing experience during her high school years that threatens to cause a rift in her meteoric rise.

She has come through a number of challenges in her life, including a school shooting and a gang-rape at the age of 14, which was largely ignored by her peers and adults alike. It is evident that the viewers were unprepared to deal with some disturbing scenes in the film because of the difficult subject matter of the film.

Internet users condemned the explicit scenes and warned about the disturbing scenes

Although Netflix noted at the beginning of the film at the top of the screen that the film contains "se*ual violence", viewers complained that the mentioned warning was not prominent enough and that they were not prepared for certain scenes.

“Netflix really dropped the ball on not adding a giant trigger warning for Luckiest Girl Alive,” one viewer wrote. “Heads up to anyone who wants to watch Luckiest Girl Alive on Netflix. The movie is triggering, heavy and the se*ual violence scenes are graphic.

I hate it when they do this coz there was no trigger warning. I was bamboozled by Netflix’s description of Luckiest Girl Alive,” an additional user stated, writing; “No trigger warning, no heads up, no nothing”.

tweeted other user. “Wow. Good job, @netflix on the trigger warning you didn’t provide on your Luckiest Girl Alive movie smh,” snarked one disappointed viewer. “PSA for anyone who is gonna watch the movie, there is very graphic intense scenes of se*ual assault in this movie”.

“Netflix really dropped the ball on not adding a giant trigger warning for Luckiest Girl Alive,” declared another. However, many praised Mila Kunis, who did a great job in this rather demanding role.
