Mini Review - All the Money in the World

All the Money in the World (out Jan 4) is set in 1973 and is based on the true story of an extremely wealthy American businessman who refused to pay a ransom when his grandson was kidnapped in Italy. The production values are strong but screenwriter David Scarpa doesn’t make the most of the 132 minute running time. The most interesting characters (e.g. Romain Duris) are the least screen time. Grade: B.
