How The Luckiest Girl Alive Movie Taught Me to Appreciate Life More

“Life is a gift.”

This is something that I was reminded of recently while watching the movie “The Luckiest Girl Alive”. The movie is based on the Novel with the same title, and it tells the story of a woman who seems to have it all – she’s beautiful, successful, and has a great life. But underneath her perfect exterior, she’s struggling with some serious issues.

The movie Luckiest Girl Alive is based on a 2015 New York Times Bestselling mysterious novel written by the American author Jessica Knoll and is her debut work. the novel was first published on May 12, 2015, by Schuster & Simon in the USA, and Pan Macmillan in Australia, and is written in the first-person narrative.

The novel follows a young woman who has sought to resuscitate herself in her adult life, following a series of horrifying events during her teenage times. The movie made me think about how lucky I am to be alive and to have the life that I do. It also made me appreciate the little things in life more. I hope that by sharing my thoughts on the movie, I can encourage you to do the same.

The Movie Has a Good Plot Story

The movie Luckiest Girl Alive alternates between two narratives. The first is the story of Ani’s approaching espousal and her growing disillusionment with her fiancé indeed as she agrees to share in a talkie film design about the academy firing she endured while a pupil at Bradley Prep, a private academy on Philadelphia’s toney Main Line.

The other is the harrowing story of her first six months at Bradley, which included a sexual assault and mass firing. Because Ani, known now by her byline name of Tiffani Fanelli, has precisely kept the utmost of her guests at Bradley secret, the new reveals only gradationally and in fractions the dimension of her traumas.

It’s 2001. When 14- year-old Ani Fanelli, expelled from a small unqualified girls’ academy for smoking pot, first arrives at Bradley, she’s apprehensive of her family’s modest means and struggles to fit in with the fat kiddies. She longs to be accepted by the cool kiddies, who include the hotties and the jocks, most especially a bodacious soccer player named Dean Palmer.

When she’s invited to a party within weeks of arriving, Ani is overjoyed. formerly there, still, drinks too important, and, in and out of knowledge, she’s sexually assaulted by three soccer players, including Dean. Determined to be part of the in-crowd, she tells no one of the gangrapes, save a youthful sympathetic Honors English schoolteacher, Mr. Larson.

Despite Ani’s bent silence, rumors circulate in the academy. Certain that she represents poisonous trouble to their sectarian world, the cool kiddies pithily banish Ani. The only sprat who’ll talk to her is one of the academy’s biggest misfits, a brilliant cerebral sprat named Arthur.

Weeks latterly at another party, Dean, the ringleader of the assault, confronts Ani and attempts to have coitus with her. She resists, and he slaps her hard. In the fate of the attack, Arthur consoles Ani and, in the process, shares with her his own disgruntlement with the cool kiddies crowd and how they tortured a friend of his, Ben, with imputations that he was gay and indeed projected him on the ground and defecated on him. Their abuse drove him to essay self-murder.

Arthur also shows her a stalking rifle his father left him before he abandoned the family times before. Within a week, Ani is stupefied when Arthur and Ben storm the academy, setting off manual snares, and bat the academy halls hunting down as numerous of the cool kiddies as they can detect.

At a vital moment, Ani and Arthur meet a wounded Dean at the bottom. Arthur offers Ani his stalking rifle and encourages her to finish off her bushwhacker before he himself shoots the helpless Dean between the legs. Ani pulls out a steak cutter she set up in the cafeteria and stabs the dean and kills him.

The Luckiest Girl Alive Movie Ending

In the end, seven scholars are dead, including the two shooters. between the victims are two of the jocks who attack our main character Ani. In fate, on the evidence of Dean, who survives the firing and now wants to insure the story of the gangrape no way comes out, accuses Ani of being part of the planning. Arthur tells the police that Ani took the gun from Arthur and shot him.

In the narrative present, Ani, now in her late twenties and a successful columnist at a prominent public magazine for women, try to get agitated over plans for her massive and precious marriage. She’s engaged to Luke Harrison, a successful fiscal counsel and the inheritor of a fat Main Line family. She has also agreed to share in a talkie film design to mark the anniversary of the academy firing.

The design stirs the recollections and anxieties Ani believed she had all but exorcized. When she confides in Luke, he doesn’t entirely believe her story and discourages her from sharing in the talkie. Let it go, he counsels. Ani also turns to Mr. Larson, now wedded and one of her hubby’s guests, who helps her handle the resurfacing recollections. In turn, the two try to spark a passion for each other. Ani becomes decreasingly indifferent to Luke and dreads the idea of marriage to someone she cannot entrust and doesn’t love.

In the course of her two-day participation in the talkie, Ani agrees to an awkward reunion with the wheelchair-bound Dean. When Dean falsely believes he’s out of range of the film crew’s microphones, he admits to Ani that he ravished her and that, in trouble to keep her quiet about the assault, he constructed the story about Arthur handing her the gun.

Armed now with that concession, Ani feels validated that her trauma, at last, can now be addressed. Confident in her reclaimed identity, she ends the engagement to Luke in a dramatic flight from the marriage trial and takes a new position at a lower magazine.
