Julia Garner and Anna Chlumsky go toe-to-toe in trailer for Inventing Anna

Ozark actress Julia Garner is giving Anna Chlumsky a run for her money as manipulative faux heiress Anna Delvey in the new trailer for the Netflix limited series, Inventing Anna.

Garner, 27, helps unravel the truly bizarre, ripped from the headlines story of Anna Delvey (or Anna Sorokin), a scamming socialite who swindled millions by pretending to be a high born German millionaire.

‘This whole story is completely true. Except for all of the parts that are totally made up,’ quips a title card in the new trailer.

‘I might have a story,’ begins Chlumsky, who plays journalist Vivian. ‘Her name is Anna Delvey, or Anna Sorokin, no one’s sure. She’s either a rich German heiress, or she’s flat broke.’

The nine-episode saga of Inventing Anna is based on the true story of Anna Sorokin, AKA Delvey. 

The new series from Shonda Rhimes will lay bare the twisted tale of Delvey’s many frauds, grifts and deceptions perpetrated between 2013 – 2017, which ultimately landed the twenty-something behind bars. 

‘Anna committed real white-collar felonies while posing as a socialite in an attempt to steal millions of dollars,’ a prosecutor is heard telling the court during Anna’s trial, which will be covered in the series.

Delvey/Sorokin’s chicanery is told through her jailhouse interviews with Vivian, which begin on an awkward foot. 

After the reporter tells her subject she just wants to ask her ‘some questions’, an aloof Delvey quips in accented English: ‘I have a question. What are you wearing? You look poor.’ 

‘I hear I’m famous,’ Garner says. ‘People are painting a public picture of me as a criminal. That’s not my story.’

The fraudster is described in the trailer as ‘everything that is wrong with America right now’ and a nobody who came to the U.S. with ‘no rich parents, no connections’.

She managed to ‘fake it till you make it’ and ended up bilking banks out of $40million in a massive loan to fund the creation of an ultra-VIP private club. At another point in the trailer it’s declared that ‘Anna stole a jet!’.

‘You have to work hard to get what you want. I’ve always known that,’ Anna says from jail. 

Her outlandish cons had many real world consequences for the people who found themselves with the misfortune of getting swept up into her orbit.

‘I realized the clues were there all along,’ Laverne Cox says sadly.

While actress Katie Lowes, cries over the thousands of charges her supposedly well-heeled friend racked up on her credit cards. 

‘Give me back that money, please,’ she pleads, only to be met with an unperturbed glare from Anna: ‘Why are you being like this? So dramatic.’  

The trailer ends with a frenzied Garner exclaiming: ‘Anna Delvey is a masterpiece b***hes …’

Sorokin, a Russian immigrant from a working-class background who moved to Germany with her family as a teen, initially began using the invented surname Delvey after moving to Paris to work at a fashion magazine.

She kept the name when she moved to the United States and reinvented herself as a German heiress, who adopted a life of luxury sustained by fraudulent loan requests. 

One of Sorokin’s traveling companions, Rachel DeLoache Williams, revealed in Vanity Fair in 2018 how her fake friend convinced her to put a $62,000 bill on her credit card, plus other expenses.

She claimed to Williams that she would wire the money to her once they were back home, but it never materialized.

Sorokin was indicted in 2017 and convicted in 2019 of eight charges, including second-degree grand larceny, attempted grand larceny, and theft of services, though the jury reached a not guilty verdict on the larceny charge for failing to pay back Williams. 

The convicted fraudster was released from prison in February of 2021, only to be taken into custody by Immigrant and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for overstaying her visa. 

Along with Garner and Chlumsky, Inventing Anna features Laverne Cox, Katie Lowes, Alexis Floyd, and Anders Holm. 

Inventing Anna comes out February 11 2022.
