All Good Things- Movie Review


All Good Things is a love story and murder mystery based on the most notorious unsolved murder case in New York history. The original screenplay uses newly discovered facts, court records and speculation as the foundation for an imaginative spellbinding story of family, obsession, love and loss.


“All Good Things” is a vaguely dramatized account of a real story about the Durst family.  It stars Ryan Gosseling, Kirsten Dunst, and Frank Langella.  Ryan was the scion of a wealthy family, and was suspected of, but never tried for, the murder of his wife who disappeared in 1982 and was never found.  The movie takes place in flashback and they changed the Durst name to the name Marks.  The movie doesn’t just imply that he killed his wife but essentially comes right out and says that he did.   Apparently this movie has been sitting around for a couple of years, and I suspect part of the reason is legal ramifications.  It is really a compelling movie with very good actors. I give it three and a half stars.
