Last-minute replacement Christopher Plummer pulls off a stunning, Oscar-nominated performance in Ridley Scott's tense crime drama. Kidnapped by the Italian mob and with a huge ransom on his head, things might seem bleak for 16-year-old John Paul Getty III. Luckily for him, $17 million is small change to his grandfather, oil tycoon J Paul Getty (Plummer). However, unluckily for the terrified teen and his distraught mother Gail (Michelle Williams), Gramps refuses to play ball. Instead it's down to Gail and former CIA man turned Getty advisor Fletcher Chase (Mark Wahlberg) to find some cash, track down the kidnappers and get the boy back in one piece.
