What exactly is ‘Loot’?
According to the official synopsis: “Molly Novak (Rudolph) is a billionaire with a fantasy life that includes private jets, a spacious mansion, and a gigayacht – anything her heart desires. But when her 20-year-husband betrays her, she explodes in public, becoming tabloid fodder. She’s at her lowest point when she discovers, to her astonishment, that she has a charity foundation overseen by the tough-as-nails Sofia Salinas (Rodriguez), who begs Molly to stop causing trouble. Molly embarks on a journey of self-discovery with the support of her devoted assistant Nicholas (Kim Booster) and Sofia and her crew, which includes mild-mannered accountant Arthur (Faxon) and her upbeat, pop-culture-loving cousin Howard (Funches). Giving back to others could be just what she needs to reclaim her identity “..
