Magnolia Pictures has announced that they've acquired distribution rights to Oscar nominated filmmaker and documentarian Andrew Jarecki's latest film All Good Things. Inspired by the most notorious missing person's case in New York history, the film is a love story and murder mystery set against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s. The drama portrayed in Jarecki's film was inspired by the story of Robert Durst, who was suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie who disappeared in 1982 and was never found. Kirsten Dunst co-stars with Ryan Gosling as well as Frank Langella and Kristen Wiig.
"In constructing the film, we used some of the extraordinary elements of the Durst case as the skeleton and inspiration for a drama about love, family, and obsession," says Jarecki. "Because it is impossible to know exactly what happened, we have not tried to replicate the history of the case, but to capture the emotion and complexity of this unsolved mystery that has for years been kept hidden from public view." This isn't playing at any film festivals yet (as far as we know) but will hit theaters in December for Oscar season. “With All Good Things, Jarecki has made the jump to features with the same accomplished, complex and fascinating filmmaking that he demonstrated with Capturing the Friedmans," said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles.
We haven't heard any buzz and don't know much about it, but Awards Daily says we could see Ryan Gosling (in Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine) vs. Ryan Gosling (in All Good Things) once Oscar season kicks into full gear. We'll keep you updated on details and will let you know once a trailer is available. Sound good?
