After years floating around in whatever purgatory actors sometimes end up in, Ryan Gosling has resurfaced. Some people are probably going to be excited over this development, but I’m completely indifferent about the actor. Or at least I was. Andrew Jarecki’s first dramatic film, All Good Things, is being distributed by the Weinstein Company and should be released sometime in December, right around Oscar season. Personally, I see immense promise for this movie. Overly dramatic music aside, I think the tension on screen looks excellent and the fact that it was based on “real life events”, albeit probably somewhat loosely, makes the movie all the more interesting.
According to Apple, the plot is as follows:
“Inspired by the most notorious missing person’s case in New York history, ALL GOOD THINGS is a love story and murder mystery set against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s. Produced and directed by Andrew Jarecki (director of the Academy Award-nominated doc Capturing the Friedmans and producer of Catfish), the film was inspired by the story of Robert Durst, scion of the wealthy Durst family. Mr. Durst was suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie who disappeared in 1982 and was never found. The film stars Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella as the powerful patriarch, and captures the emotion and complexity of this real-life unsolved mystery.“
