Ghislaine Maxwell’s story is now the subject of another documentary. The socialite, who aided Jeffrey Epstein in his crimes, was already profiled in a Starz documentary titled “Who Is Ghislaine Maxwell?” — and now her story is getting the Netflix treatment.
Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison in June on charges related to the sex trafficking and interstate transportation of minors. A one-time girlfriend and later friend of Epstein, she played a key role in recruiting the minors who Epstein sexually abused, per The New York Times. She is currently incarcerated in Tallahassee, FL, per ABC News.
The forthcoming documentary, entitled “Ghislaine Maxwell: Filthy Rich,” is a follow-up to the documentary “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,” which was released in 2020. Director Lisa Bryant has returned for the Maxwell film.
