Paul Getty Sr. (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, Fletcher Chase (Mark Wahlberg), become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.

John Paul Getty III: [voice over] To be a Getty is an extraordinary thing. My grandfather wasn’t just the richest man in the world, he was the richest man in the history of the world.
