All the Money in the World features billionaire Paul Getty who is judged harshly for not forking up a $17-million ransom to rescue his kidnapped grandson (Paul Getty III) from Italian thugs.

Not realising paying up is an open invitation to future extortation, Gail Harris (Michelle Williams), mother of Paul Getty III, desperately tries to convince her son's billionaire grandfather to pay the ransom, as her son's captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son's life in the balance, Gail and Getty's adviser (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.

The film is directed by Academy Award winner Ridley Scott and stars Academy Award winners Christopher Plummer and Michelle Williams, Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg and Romain Duris.

All the Money in the World was nominated for three Golden Globe awards, including Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama and Best Director.
