With all the hoopla surrounding this film and the changing of actors as well as the Oscar nominations, you’d think this film would be worth a watch. It does have its moments, but what I noticed at the start is how confusing the timeline is. We move through the years with just glimpses of the family, jumping again and again in the timeline until July of 1973. On the morning of the kidnapping, we follow as Paul Getty is abducted and his mother tries to rescue him, all the while knocking heads with his grandfather. The film does smooth out during this conflict as both mother and grandfather have different views about how to save Paul. The acting is superb, but the film only scratches the surface of the family dynamics. I was not impressed. The film isn’t worth a watch.
