The new documentary Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?, premiering Friday on Starz, tries to fill in some of those gaps. Family friends, acquaintances and her father’s ex-employees attempt to suss out what drove the effervescent heiress to a life of crime that would upend her life and that of her dozens of victims. There’s plenty of armchair psychology from not-so-close friends, but the most riveting stuff comes in the first episode of the three-part series, which follows Ghislaine from childhood to college to New York City, where she is alleged to have jumped out of a limo to give her number to young girls walking down the street.

The nitty-gritty of the pyramid scheme, the private island, and the horrifying network of abuse is covered in much greater detail in Netflix’s Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich.
