Netflix's Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich will show how she abused her privileges to aid Jeffrey Epstein
The trailer for Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich was released on October 27, 2022, and begins with a voiceover that provides an insight contrary to popular opinion.
"You are taught that predators are old men in alleys. You're not told that a friend, a socialite, a woman can be a predator too."
It then gives viewers glimpses of multiple people being interviewed. These include people involved in the legal proceedings against Ghislaine Maxwell and Epstein survivors like Annie Farmer, among others. The trailer is spliced with media footage of Maxwell's trial and various photographs of her over the years.
Maintaining a tense tone throughout, the trailer also raises the question as to why Ghislaine Maxwell was not arrested at the same time as Jeffrey Epstein. The official synopsis for Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich, as per Netflix, reads as:
"Stories from survivors frame this documentary detailing the s*x-trafficking trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, a socialite and accomplice of Jeffrey Epstein."
Netflix shared some more information about the documentary on its YouTube page that read:
"Discover the monster behind the monster. From filmmakers behind Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich go beyond the headlines of the Ghislaine Maxwell case to tell the definitive story of Epstein's mysterious accomplice, illuminating how her class and privilege concealed her predatory nature."
Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?
Ghislaine Maxwell is the youngest daughter of former British minister and late media tycoon Robert Maxwell. Owing to her father's status and wealth, she was able to mingle with London's elite and was a socialite in the 80s. Following her father's death in 1991, Ghislaine moved to New York, where she crossed paths with Jeffrey Epstein.
The two were in a romantic relationship for a brief period and though it fell apart, they remained close friends for decades. Maxwell, by the time Epstein was arrested in 2015, had largely disappeared from public life.
Under the FBI's radar for facilitating Epstein, Maxwell was also named in multiple lawsuits by survivors, who accused her of grooming them to be exploited by Epstein.
Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested in 2020 and was eventually convicted on five out of six counts that she was accused of, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Maxwell is currently serving her sentence.
Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich, produced by RadicalMedia and Third Eye Motion Picture Company, airs exclusively on Netflix on November 25, 2022, alongside Blood & Water season 3. While Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich was a four-part docuseries, its follow-up is a film that runs for under two hours.
