      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      While Inventing Anna is as tonally wobbly as Julia Garner's intentionally daffy accent, her committed performance and the salacious story make for juicy entertainment.

      Liz Shannon Miller Consequence One of the most fascinating series of the year so far, playing right into our collective loves of gossip and scandal because Rhimes knows exactly what shes doing. Mar 19, 2022 Full Review Alissa Wilkinson Vox What’s the point? In the case of Inventing Anna, the answer is some ethically muddled, bizarrely patronizing mumbo-jumbo about how women are punished for doing things that men get away with. Okay? Is that all? Mar 18, 2022 Full Review Alessa Dominguez BuzzFeed News In trying to make the show about gossip and the media, Inventing Anna actually misses whatever it is that Anna herself was up to and rather focused on what she thought she was doing. Instead of adding complexity, it just comes off as muddled. Mar 4, 2022 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut Inventing Anna is a fun, suspenseful, and highly addictive ride. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 5, 2022 Full Review Alexandra MacAaron Women's Voices for Change Julia Garner, two-time Emmy winner, disappears into the enigma wrapped in a riddle (wrapped in Chanel) that is Anna, a complex woman on a protracted crime spree. Between the sets and costumes and the story’s sheer audacity, it’s great fun to watch. Rated: 8/10 Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Juan Carlos Galindo El Pais (Spain) An irrestistible story....

      Rachel The main character is intolerable. She is so unwatchable and straight-up manipulates and harasses people into giving her her way. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/24 Full Review Sam W This show was so easy to not like. It's so apparent that Anna did what she is being accused of. But the way she got away with it is just so .. unrealistic? Not sure if that's the right word to use here but there's just no way that she fooled and stole from ALL of the people like that. Like did no one actually research the girl or her family? This rich Daddy that cut her off? So just cause she throw tantrums, literally, and walks around in designer clothes you're just going to say she good for thousands of dollars? I just don't like the character and the bratty attitude. As if she's not legit scamming people out of millions of dollars and then blaming them for not supporting her dream … is insanium. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/15/24 Full Review Benjamin G Fast, funny, and thrilling. Brilliantly written and acted, one of the best modern day "based on a true story" dramadies. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/05/24 Full Review J M i hate watched for a little while. Incredibly awful. Every character was unlikeable and I regret wasting the time Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/29/23 Full Review David W As many of the main characters feel, it's hard not to root for Anna in this flashy, engaging miniseries that is itself a telling perpetuation of the true story. At times it feels more like an engrossing Real Housewives franchise while at other times the story is raw and scary. A little compression could have helped, as the series stretches on for perhaps one too many episodes, but overall it's very enjoyable. I would definitely watch this again. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/24/23 Full Review Dik S Sucked and the actress was horrible is she deaf and that's why the accent it's hilarious Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
