Inventing Anna #millions #nospoilers

I did it! I watched every episode of Inventing Anna and yes, I do regret it. But I also kind of don’t. This series had me very conflicted. It was a very long watch, but what kept me going was that I had to know how it was going to end. I didn’t watch because I wanted to find out why someone like Anna did what she did. Like could her behavior be justified? Was she abused as a child, was she misunderstood, was she mentally unstable? No, I didn’t care about any of that. I watched because I wanted to see how far she would get. How far would people bend over to validate this woman’s dream/lies? Come to find out: pretty, pretty far. I also realized something~ this is why people transplant themselves to large cities. People flock to large cities for several reasons but this particular type of person does it because it gives them the opportunity to have this Cinderella like story where you can start from nothing and magically end up the princess of the ball with little to no merit. This would never happen in a small town. You may dazzle for a couple of days, maybe weeks but years, heck no! Folks in a flyover state would have smelled the BS within minutes but would have just kept it to themselves and enjoyed the show until the stink got so bad nobody would go near. But in NYC Anna only became bigger over the years as she faked it til she made it to the top of society. Either way I think I get the appeal. Regardless of how ridiculous Anna’s behavior was- it almost worked. That’s why I kept watching and I imagine why people kept helping her. Each of them: the bankers, the lawyers, the architects, the opportunists, despite their intuition thought maybe just maybe she might be able to pull it off and make me rich(er) too. Which kept me thinking: who was worse? Anna for trying to pull off the impossible, or the enablers who kept her lie going. Either way I don’t feel bad for anyone involved after watching all that time because no one was innocent. Overall, I feel Inventing Anna is a great blueprint for anyone ballsy enough to try to rise above their station in life with flair. If you’re gutsy enough to try it, just know it can end amazingly with great success in a Park Ave penthouse wearing couture, or horribly in a jail cell wearing a tacky orange jumpsuit. ~SRI did it!
