Inventing Anna

Seasons: 1

Created By: Shonda Rhimes

Starring: Julia Garner, Anna Chlumsky, Arian Moayed, Anders Holm, Laverne Cox, Katie Lowes, and Alexis Floyd 

Created and produced by the beloved Shonda Rhimes, Inventing Anna hit Netflix in Feb. 2022 and instantly caught viewers’ attention. The limited series follows the story of real-life Anna Delvey (real name Anna Sorokin), a young woman from Russia who pretends to be a wealthy heiress.

Anna cons New York City’s elite out of money, opportunities, and even a private jet! It’s so entertaining watching Inventing Anna knowing that many of the moments depicted really happened in real life. It’s a gripping story that’ll have you invested from start to finish.

And of course, let’s not forget the star of Inventing Anna: Julia Garner. The Ozark actress is known for her talent, having already won multiple Emmy Awards, and her success is not slowing down anytime soon. She’s a fantastic actress and she absolutely kills the role of Anna Delvey. Just be prepared for the ridiculous accent that really does sound like the real-life person.

Inventing Anna is only nine episodes and it likely won’t come back for a second season. It’s a great binge and you’ll be happy you watched it, I’m sure.

Verdict: WATCH
