Inspired by actual events, Trust delves into the trials and triumphs of one of America’s wealthiest and unhappiest families, the Gettys. Equal parts family history, dynastic saga and an examination of the corrosive power of money, Trust explores the complexities at the heart of every family, rich or poor.
The story of billionaire oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, in his day the richest man in the world, and the kidnapping of his teen aged grandson John Paul Getty III in 1973 had not often been told, but in recent months, it’s been the subject of both a Ridley Scott film All the Money in the World and now in a lavish FX series “Trust,” that premiered Sunday.
What’s unusual is that the stories are quite divergent: what was a straight kidnapping in the film starring Christopher Plummer is a faked abduction in the series starring Donald Sutherland.
