Rome, 1973. Masked men kidnap teenager John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and demand a $17-million ransom from his oil-tycoon grandfather, Jean Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer), the richest man in the world. Unmoved by the pleas of his grandson’s strong-willed mother, Gail (Williams), the miserly Getty refuses to part with any of his fortune. As the extortion methods of her son’s captors escalate in brutal fashion, Gail finds an unlikely ally in Getty’s enigmatic business manager, Fletcher Chase (Wahlberg), in a tense race against time to recover the boy alive. Scripted by David Scarpa (whose screenplay is based on John Pearson’s book, Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes And Misfortunes Of The Heirs Of J. Paul Getty), Ridley Scott’s captivating retelling of the true story reveals the lasting value of love over money.
