Not Okay trailer finds Zoey Deutch faking her way to Instagram fame as a terror attack survivor


Zoey Deutch learns it’s not always best to get what you wish for in the first trailer for Searchlight Pictures’ Not Okay.

The 27-year-old actress plays Danni Sanders, a young woman desperate to become known for something… which happens when she fakes being sent to Paris for a writer’s conference… just before a deadly terror attack.

Sanders then becomes an international sensation for seemingly surviving the attack – despite never having set foot in Paris – as her influencer career takes off on a lie.

The trailer begins with Danni talking with her boss, who says she read the article Danni sent her.

‘Don’t you feel it comes off a little tone-deaf? Offensive, even?’ the boss asks as Danni says she thinks she doesn’t, ‘take me seriously as a writer.’

‘That’s because you’re not a writer. You’re a photo editor,’ the boss plainly states as Danni leaves the office, saying in voice over, ‘Have you ever wanted to be noticed so badly you didn’t even care what it was for?’

The trailer shows shots of her Instagram account, revealing a whopping 52 followers, while she’s seen meeting Colin (Dylan O’Brien) from her office… though he clearly doesn’t recognize her.

A man from across the street tells Colin he loves his videos, as his Instagram is revealed to have 274K followers, as he tells the fan, ‘Thanks, B!’

Colin asks Danni what she does, and she tells him she’s a writer and she’s, ‘trying to develop my work by travelling,’ though he’s clearly not interested.

‘I’m going to Paris for it,’ she adds, which gets Colin’s attention, telling her to ‘get lots of pics.’

She gets home to her apartment and creates a makeshift greenscreen, transporting herself to Paris through the magic of Photoshop.

She even tells her mom that she’s been invited to Paris and starts posting a flurry of photos, which ultimately leads to Colin finally following her, as she ends her night elated.

The next morning, though, her world comes crashing down, after her phone starts blowing up and she learns there was several terrorist attacks in Paris that morning.

‘Oh f**k,’ she says, as she fakes her ‘return’ at the airport and she finds herself a star in the making, as she reunites with Colin, who says he’s glad she’s not dead.
