Mila Kunis stars as lead character Ani in the film, and things are set to get dark. According to the official Netflix synopsis: "Luckiest Girl Alive centers on Ani FaNelli, a sharp-tongued New Yorker who appears to have it all: a sought-after position at a glossy magazine, a killer wardrobe, and a dream Nantucket wedding on the horizon.

"But when the director of a crime documentary invites her to tell her side of the shocking incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Brentley School, Ani is forced to confront a dark truth that threatens to unravel her meticulously crafted life."

There is indeed and it's pretty gripping, with a number of flashbacks taking us back to the mysterious high school incident. It's hard to grasp exactly what went down just from the trailer, but we're expecting some huge revelations. Have a watch here:
