Cinema Capitol, 230 W. Dominick St., will present the biographical drama “All the Money in the World” Friday through Thursday.

Directed by Ridley Scott, the movie follows the true kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) in 1973 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.

The movie also stars Romain Duris, Andrew Buchan, Ghassan Massoud and Marco Leonardi.

The film was nominated for three Golden Globes. Christopher Plummer was also nominated for “Best Supporting Actor” at the BAFTA Awards and by the North Carolina Film Critics Association.

Newsday writes that “All the Money in the World” is “terrific entertainment that packs a philosophical punch.” The Seattle Times writes “The film’s an impressive accomplishment, on several levels.”

The movie runs 132 minutes and is rated R (for language, some violence, disturbing images and brief drug content).

Admission is $7, $6 for students and military and $5 for Capitol Friends.

Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol Theatre box office (315-337-6453) and online at www.romecapitol.com.
