Anna Chlumsky has rocketed back into the limelight with her performance on the Netflix original Inventing Anna. This mini-series is a Shondaland production and has been wildly popular on the streamer. Chlumsky is known for her roles in Veep and the 1991 film My Girl.

The series was created and produced by Shonda Rhimes and was inspired by Anna Sorokin’s story and an article by journalist Jessica Pressler “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People.” Sorokin came to the US, changed her name to Delvey, posed as a German-born heiress, and swindled many of NYC’s elite out of their money.

Chlumsky portrays Vivian Kent, a fictionalized version of Pressler, who tackles the investigative reporting on how Delvey conned so many people out of so much money. She interviews Delvey and her friends and enemies to untangle the mess of a story to find out if Anna is a real heiress or not.

If you haven’t watched this series yet, I highly recommend doing so!

Is My Girl on Netflix?

Fans of Chlumsky’s Vada Sultenfuss from the movie My Girl are wondering if they can stream this film on Netflix. The answer is YES!

This coming-of-age story brings back fond memories for kids of the 90s. Chlumsky starred with Dan Aykroyd, Jamie Lee Curtis, Macaulay Culkin, Richard Masur and Griffin Dunne.

The story follows Vada, an 11-year-old girl growing up in the early 70s. She and her father live in the town’s funeral parlor, which her father runs. Due to her upbringing, she is obsessed with death and has become a hypochondriac as a result.

She spends her summer with her best friend, Thomas J, a boy teased at school because he is allergic to everything, and attends a poetry class taught by her teacher Mr. Bixler, whom she has a crush on.

The movie shows Vada as she navigates growing up without a mother, first crushes, friendship, and eventually tragedy. It is a wonderful movie that is sad yet sweet.
