A titan of industry is sent to prison after she's caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America's latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.
In one scene, Kathy Bates (who starred in Stephen King's movies, Misery (1990) and Dolores Claiborne (1995)), refers to Michelle Darnell as "Shawshank", which is a nod to another Stephen King movie, The Shawshank Redemption (1994).
Michelle, if you can't give me a raise, I can't continue to work here.
Michelle Darnell: Well, look who finally showed up to my seminar. About time, Claire, I love it. I didn't know you were listening all these years. What am I always saying?
Tito: Don't go in that room!
Michelle Darnell: True...
There is a limited amount of time that one's assets can be frozen by the government. Since Michelle is an ex-felon and not a parolee (there is no parole in the federal prison system) the adjudication of her sentence is down and her assets would have been released. Even if the government seized some as fines and retribution for any possible victims, Michelle should have more than enough assets to remain wealthy, including deferred compensation.
Out-takes are shown during the closing credits.
