All the Money in the World

Saturday night while Sharon was in Wichita, I watched All the Money in the World. Sharon had watched it on the flight back from New York at Easter. This is still part of my continuing effort to see all of this year's Oscar nominated films.

The movie is based on John Pearson's 1995 book Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty. The film depicts J. Paul Getty's refusal to cooperate with the extortion demands of a group of kidnappers from the organized crime Mafia group 'Ndrangheta, who abducted his grandson John Paul Getty III in 1973.

It stars Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, Charlie Plummer, and Timothy Hutton. For his performance as Getty, Christopher Plummer received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Kevin Spacey originally portrayed J. Paul Getty. After multiple sexual misconduct allegations were leveled against Spacey, the role was recast with Plummer. Scenes were reshot just a month prior to the film's release.

This is a solid movie. I enjoyed and recommend it.
