Since the premiere last Friday 11 February Anna’s creation (Inventing Anna) is the most watched movie on Netflix. The series is based on the amazing story of Anna Sorokin, a young Russian woman who posed as a German heiress named Anna Davy during his stay in the United States.
Like many others, Netflix found Anna’s story fascinating, so she decided to put it on screen in a series he created Shonda Rhimes starring Julia GarnerAnd Anna Klumsky Katie LouiseAnd Alexis flyods Laverne Cox. While most of the series is based on a true story, as it was inspired by a New York Times article, “How Anna (Sorokin) Delphi Fooled the New York Party People” by Jessica Pressler, other aspects are fictional.
This has led many to wonder How true are the events narrated in Inventing Anna. The series seeks in many respects Dramatize and highlight Anna’s crimes To bring that life of brilliance and recognition. Although fiction shows Anna’s present on trial and imprisonment in Riker Prison, flashbacks of her life often show her actions as the kind of feat that allowed her to rise in the social sphere and conquer a life full of luxury, fame, and cash.
This did not leave everyone satisfied with the image of Anna, in particular Rachel Williams, who was Anna’s friend, but was also a victim of her own criminal actions. Williams was a journalist for the magazine Vanity Fair When he met Sorokin. In 2018, he published a magazine article titled “My Bright-Lights Misadventure with a Magician of Manhattan” and in 2019 he published a book called my friend (My friend Anna), as she details her experience with the young woman, including a trip to Morocco that left her in debts of more than $60,000.
In recent days, Williams published an article in the language Time Magazine where Criticizes Netflix’s Latest Novel for ‘Compensation for Delphi Crimes’. Likewise, she disapproved of the portrayal of herself, performed by Katie Louise, and described her as “a born-again follower whose blind love for Anna nearly ruined her job, her credit and her life”.
Williams begins his writing by recounting that more than four years have passed since he helped police conduct an operation to arrest his ex-girlfriend, fraudulent artist Anna Sorokin. He even says that he testified at his trial, having been left with large debts, after he paid for a fully paid trip to Morocco.
“Millions will see how Anna is portrayed as a complex anti-hero fighting her own personal demons in a world that constantly devalues young women. More people who know Anna or do her work will see it to understand who she really is or what she is.” It did. This is a serious fact,” writes Williams.
It is also used as a vitriol for Media actions and media representation by Anna. Basically giving him a microphone to tell his story, with which he tries to justify his criminal behavior as a form of “high art”.
“If your crimes are glamorous enough, a media company might take away the rights to your story before trial so you can pay the attorney of your choice, a lawyer qualified enough to reduce your sentence. You can get a lot of money, even after his money is frozen and money is paid to the victims, He has money left,” Williams continues, explaining that at the end of the day, if fame is what you seek, This person will have created a ‘brand’ and will find an audience to target.
In April 2019, Sorokin was convicted of defrauding banks, hotels, and other institutions out of more than $200,000.. In May of the same year, Anna was sentenced to 4 to 12 years in prison. During the trial, she was locked up on Rikers Island and later transferred to Albion Correctional Facility. On February 11, 2021, she was released, but in March she was detained by ICE for overstaying her visa.
