All the Money in the World

What is the price of a life?


All the Money in the World
Based on the famous kidnapping which took place in Rome, 1973. Masked men kidnap a teenage boy named John Paul Getty III. His grandfather, Jean Paul Getty, is the richest man in the world, a billionaire oil magnate, but he’s notoriously miserly. His favourite grandson’s abduction is not reason enough for him to part with any of his fortune. We follow Gail, the boy’s devoted, strong-willed mother, who unlike grand-dad, has consistently chosen her children over his fortune. With her son’s life in the balance and time running out, she attempts to sway Getty even as her son’s mob captors become increasingly more determined, volatile and brutal. When Getty sends his enigmatic security man to look after his interests, he and Gail become unlikely allies in this race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money. The film garnered one Oscar nomination.

Ilan Preskovsky quote iconPlummer is great as the thoroughly unlikable but not entirely unsympathetic JP Getty, Michelle Williams is about as great as ever and everything about the film does its job very nearly flawlessly; all culminating in a pulse-pounding final act. It's an easy recommendation, especially to those who like this sort of film but it's nothing to get particularly excited about.
