What To Do Today: See ‘All The Money In The World’

Shirk the January blues by getting lost in the best films of this Awards Season which are currently being screened across the country. One of the buzziest is ‘All The Money In The World’, which is released today. The film follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the attempts of his mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to get hold of the ransom money from the boy’s billionaire grandson (Christopher Plummer).

The movie has already garnered extensive media coverage due to director Ridley Scott’s decision to replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in the midst of a Hollywood scandal and reshoot in six weeks at a reported cost of $10million. All the money in the world, indeed!

It’s showing at various cinemas from today, making for perfect Friday evening entertainment. These screenings are our top picks, at some of London’s best indie cinemas.
