Netflix has been busting out new movies and tv series lately that have quickly found their way to the top.
One show in particular though, needs to come with some sort of trigger warning because the entire premise of the show could completely catch someone off guard.
Now, this may be a huge spoiler for people so if you haven’t seen Netflix’s Luckiest Girl Alive click away now.
Okay, so in case you didn’t know, Luckiest Girl Alive on Netflix is actually based on a 2015 novel by Jessica Knoll of the same name.
If you didn’t know this was a book or haven’t read the book, you may be slightly confused once you start watching the show. I’ll be honest, I thought it was going to be some sort of a rom com and I was completely wrong.
The official synopsis reads:
A writer’s perfectly crafted New York City life starts to unravel when a true-crime documentary forces her to confront her harrowing high school history.
By reading that and not knowing what the show or book is about, it could turn very dark and ugly for some, very fast.
The Trigger Warning Netflix’s Newest Show Starring Mila Kunis Needs
So, the show follows Mila Kunis’s character Tiffany and flashes between her seemingly perfect now and what happened to her as a teenager.
In the show, Tiffany (Mila Kunis) experiences several tragedy’s after attending a prestigious school.
During one night of drinking with her peers, her character gets drunk and is r@ped by 3 boys back to back.
If that isn’t bad enough, there is then a school shooting (which is quite gruesome) and it ends with her killing one of the active shooters which also happened to be one of her friends throughout the show.
While the show was quite good especially for as much that went on, it could be a massive trigger for someone who has a hard time watching these things or for someone who has been a victim in one of these situations before.
In fact, it could be a trigger in more ways than one.
And that’s the thing, Netflix is no stranger to trigger warnings.
In fact, when the first episode of Stranger Things 4 was released earlier this year, they supplied a trigger warning due to the portrayal of child deaths in the show.
So, honestly, I think it’s worth a mention and I wish Netflix supplied a trigger warning at the beginning.
You can watch Luckiest Girl Alive on Netflix now.
