Netflix’s Only My Ending Explained

Netflix’s Only My Ending Explained

just me Spoilers to follow.

It’s never a good time to release a thriller about a violently murderous domestic abuser who happens to be a cop and uses his powers to get away with it.but now really Not a good time.

That’s probably why just me, a direct VOD movie made in 2018, is only now being released on Netflix in the UK. The only thing that really makes this film fascinating is that it opens with the words: Based on a true story.

Unfortunately, this is a lie. just me This is based on the fact that many women are shot by current or ex-partners, sometimes they survive, but most of the time, they don’t.


true story just me The claim is based on claims by Laura Cussera, who was kidnapped and shot dead by her ex-boyfriend in 1995, against whom a protection order has been issued. She lived unconscious in a ditch for four days until her ex came to his senses and told authorities where he had left her to die.

It’s a brutal story, and the plot can only be told very meanly only mine, in which college graduate Julie (Amber Midthunder) begins dating a cop named David (Brett Zimmerman), who quickly becomes possessive and threatening. His behavior only escalated when she tried to break up with him.

There isn’t much else to the movie’s story. We watched him slowly ruin her life, spreading rumors about her drinking, hacking her email, withdrawing her college application, and more.


With nowhere to go, Julie finds David’s ex-girlfriend Alicia, who shuts the door in front of her. Just as she was on her way home from the visit, David caught her – and she tried to escape, causing him to shoot her in the legs and back.

Unlike Laura Cuchera’s true story, Julie wakes up and heads to David’s family cabin, where she kills him for revenge.what makes just me Even more bizarrely, some of the filming appears to be a documentary about crime, leading to her bizarre “interviews” with her friend, David’s boss, and the detective sent to find Jolie.

By the end of the movie, everyone agrees that Jolie’s survival is a miracle, and, really, she shouldn’t be alive. “But I am,” Jolie says, staring at the camera (though not in the interview scene?), before the film cuts to the title card, which reads:

“In 1995, Laura Kuchera was kidnapped, shot in the head, and died. She survived. Her attacker is still behind bars. This film is dedicated to Laura, to everywhere Victims of abuse.”


just me It’s certainly weird — it’s not savage enough to be useless, nor good enough, well, well. It sucks, and worse it tries to say something serious and fails.

Worse (yes, it got worse) is that the real-life Laura Cuchera died in a car accident just a year after she miraculously survived.Her story is more devastating than her story just me True, but not just me Acting as some sort of “wish fulfillment” that Laura Kucera might have.

All in all, it’s boring and frustrating, a hateful combination that Kuchera and all the other abuse victims don’t deserve.
