Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich, a Netflix documentary, will show how she abused her power to help Jeffrey Epstein.
The Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich trailer was published on October 27, 2022 and opens with a voiceover that offers information contrary to popular belief.
“You’ve learned that predators are older dudes hiding in alleys. You are not warned that a friend, a socialite or a lady can also be a predator.
Then clips are shown of different people being interviewed. Among them are people involved in the legal trials of Ghislaine Maxwell, as well as Epstein survivors like Annie Farmer. The trailer features clips from Maxwell’s trial and photos of her taken over the years. The clip, which maintains a taut tone throughout, also raises the question of why Ghislaine Maxwell wasn’t arrested at the same time as Jeffrey Epstein. According to Netflix, the official description for Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich is as follows:
“Survivor stories surround this documentary about Ghislaine Maxwell, a socialite and Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking associate.”
Netflix provided more details about the documentary on their YouTube channel, stating:
“Find out who the monster behind the monster is. Alongside the headlines from the Ghislaine Maxwell case, the filmmakers behind Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich reveal the definitive story of Epstein’s enigmatic accomplice, illustrating how her status and privilege obscured her predatory nature.”
Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?
Ghislaine Maxwell is the youngest daughter of the late media billionaire and former British politician Robert Maxwell. She was a socialite in the 1980s due to her father’s fame and fortune, which enabled her to interact with London’s elite. Ghislaine moved to New York when her father died in 1991, where she met Jeffrey Epstein. They briefly had a love affair and although it ended, they remained good friends for decades. Maxwell had essentially disappeared from view by the time Epstein was arrested in 2015.
Maxwell, who was wanted by the FBI for assisting Epstein, was also cited in many cases by survivors who accused her of grooming them to be abused by Epstein. Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested in 2020 and later convicted of five of the six charges against her, receiving a 20-year prison sentence. Maxwell is now in prison.
