Mila Kunis movie divides fans with rape scene

Spoiler alert! The following post is all about the important plot points of the new movie “Luckiest Girl Alive”, so beware if you haven’t seen it yet.

Mila Kunis’ new movie is #1 on Netflix. But it divides viewers with a controversial scene.

“Luckiest Girl Alive,” based on author Jessica Knoll’s 2015 book of the same name, follows Ani FaNelli (Kunis), a seemingly perfect, put-together New Yorker whose trauma – of enduring a gang rape at 14 years old and surviving a high school shooting – begins to unravel. Throughout her life, she was blamed by her own mother, shamed by her classmates and forced to bear the responsibility for her own aggression, in silence.

Kunis’ latest film has garnered widespread support for its sobering depiction of the trauma of rape, which Knoll wrote based on her own experience. However, critics questioned the need for not one, but three graphic rape scenes.

“Don’t watch Luckyest Girl Alive. The scenes are way too triggering,” user @MimieLaushi warned.

“I felt uncomfortable in parts of the film and rightly so because we should feel uncomfortable blaming the victims for what happened,” another user @lalakaris wrote.

The depiction of rape on screen has long been the subject of debate: ‘Game of Thrones’ and, more recently, Netflix’s ‘Blonde’ have both faced backlash for what many have called “exploitative” representations of sexual violence. But if the goal is to accurately describe a survivor’s experience, can these scenes have educational value?
