Filmul se bazeaza pe povestea adevarata a lui Arlyn Brickman, o femeie a mafiei care a fost violata de alti mafioti, in cursul unei vieti petrecute in mijlocul acestei lumi foarte periculoase. Ea a adunat in final informatii si probe pentru procurori, pe care i-a ajutat sa il trimita la inchisoare pe Anthony Scarpati. Mob Girl se va baza pe cartea cu acelasi nume scrisa de Teresa Carpenter.

“Explorarea unei minti criminale este cu adevarat interesanta si ceva ce nu am facut pana acum. Sunt interesata de un personaj mai violent si mai viciat,” a explicat regizoarea daneza.

Acesta este rezumatul cartii [in engleza]:

From an early age, Arlyn Brickman associated with petty and some not so petty racketeering figures, starting with her grandmother and father. Intoxicated by the glamour and flash, she made herself “indispensable” to wiseguys by running errands, carrying packages, or offering her home as a meeting place or safe haven-not to mention the dozens of mob figures with whom she slept. Before long, she vaulted from an adjunct role into the thick of bookmaking, loansharking, and drug dealing. Over a 30-year career, she had eight abortions and endured beatings, humiliations, and a brutal rape, eventually becoming a government informant and witness.

Mob Girl va avea premiera in 2011 si o va avea pe Jessica Biel in rolul principal.
