ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Christopher Plummer) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son's captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son's life in the balance, Gail and Getty's advisor (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
"This movie may be about the soul-corroding nature of money, and it illustrates that well, but what exactly does it all mean? Scott proves miserly in providing answers beyond that."
-Katie Walsh, TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE
"For a time this movie will probably be best known for the behind-the-scenes drama. But the work itself deserves to endure as one of the better films of 2017."
-Richard Roeper, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
"Plummer delivers brilliance in what had to be record time, and every person sharing a scene with Plummer - Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg, in particular - comes in fresh and spontaneous, responding anew to another actor's completely different energy."
-Mick LaSalle, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
