Netflix has revealed the first trailer and release date for the mystery-drama movie, “Luckiest Girl Alive.” Based on Jessica Knoll’s novel of the same name, “Luckiest Girl Alive” will release on October 7 on Netflix, worldwide.
Jessica Knoll has also written the screenplay of the film, which is directed by Mike Barker with Mila Kunis leading the cast. Knoll will also do a cameo as "Woman in the elevator."
Luckiest Girl Alive centers on Ani FaNelli (Mila Kunis), a sharp-tongued New Yorker who looks to have it all: a sought-after position at a glossy magazine, a great wardrobe, and a dream Nantucket wedding on the horizon. While the producer of a crime documentary invites Ani to give her side of the terrible incident that occurred when she was a student at the elite Bradley School, she is forced to confront a dark truth that threatens to ruin her neatly built life.
“She will cut you if you don’t get it right,” says Jessica Knoll. For Ani, played with icy elegance by Mila Kunis, this rarified pronunciation represents her journey from a teenager named TifAni, who always felt out of place in her old money prep school, into Ani, the ultimate New York City insider with a gorgeous, wealthy fiancé (Finn Wittrock), a sexy magazine job, designer clothes and the kind of shiny hair that makes other women swivel on the street. But, is Ani’s self-proclaimed “perfect life” really enough to numb the most painful parts of her past?
The cast of the film also includes Finn Wittrock (The Big Short, American Horror Story), Scoot McNairy (Narcos: Mexico, Argo), Justine Lupe, Dalmar Abuzeid, Chiara Aurelia, Thomas Barbusca, Carson MacCormac, Alex Barone, Jennifer Beals, Melody Shang, Connie Britton, Alexandra Beaton, Nicole Huff, Leah Pinsent, James Gerald Hicks, and Gabrielle Hespe.
Bruna Papandrea and Jeanne Snow for Made Up Stories; Erik Feig and Lucy Kitada for PICTURESTART; and Mila Kunis for Orchard Farm Productions are the producers. Executive Producers are Jessica Knoll; Shayne Fiske Goldner; Lisa Sterbakov; and Steve Hutensky. Julia Hammer for PICTURESTART is the co-producer.
Luckiest Girl Alive is based on Knoll’s 2015 New York Times bestselling novel of the same name. The novel has sold over a million copies worldwide and has been translated into 38 different languages.
