Review of Luckiest Girl Alive
Luckiest Girl Alive, the latest of these films falls in that latter category. Based on the book of the same name by Jessica Knoll, who also serves as a screenwriter, the movie not only dramatizes a school shooting in poor taste, but it has the gall to use one as the backdrop while it also exploits rape trauma in the name of girl boss feminism.
Her desire to be the most uncontestably rich person stems from her high school in Philadelphia, Ami is a survivor of the deadliest private school shooting in U.S. history. The shooting took place in 1999. Quite a distinction as the whole thing is mostly made up of tasteless decisions.

We learn that one of the survivors, now a gun reform activist, claims that Anii was in on the shooting and this survivor was one of three classmates who gang-raped Ani at a school dance after the party just weeks before the shooting. In order to win the he-said-she-said of it all. Ani aims to climb to the top of the social ladder and then share her side of the story.
A flashback to a classroom where Ani’s sympathetic English teacher Mr.Larson complicates her analysis of Holden Caulfield as an unreliable narrator suggests the filmmakers want us to view Ani as equally unreliable, having centered herself into the narrative.
Does this mean the film’s narrow viewpoint of competing traumas is solely because it presented the events from Ani’s wrapped point of view?
