Janet's TAKE: Michelle Williams and Christopher Plummer are outstanding in the riveting #AllTheMoneyInTheWorld. B+

Director Ridley Scott did a remarkable job of
reshooting J. Paul Getty's scenes with Plummer in record time. The epic length slows the story down a bit but overall, a fascinating tale of the ultra-rich.

Synopsis:
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. -SPE
