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. By the way, this is a true story.

If you haven’t seen it, Christopher Plummer gave a fantastic performance and much better than Kevin Spacey with makeup on. Christopher Plummer had a little makeup on to make himself older. They were some scenes with Kevin Spacey in it, but Christopher Plummer was magnificent.

In other words, Christopher Plummer was original to play J. Paul Getty, and he met the real person in London. So when he heard that Kevin Spacey was fired from the movie, because of sexual harassment. Christopher Plummer had two weeks to memorize his lines before the reshoot.

Reshooting of the movie cost of money. Since Mark Walberg was paid more than Michelle Williams and Michelle Williams is the lead in the movie. It didn’t make sense why she did not get a bigger cut of the reshooting the same scenes. Maybe she was paid more when they shot the first time and for the reshoot paid less.  Still, the lead actor should get more. Mark Walberg has the supporting role, and Mark is a highest paid actor for 2017.  If this movie makes more money than it’s budget, then they will be paid again.

So please see this movie, again and again, By the way, this movie was fantastic. This movie has two Oscar-winning actors:
