Inspired by the stranger-than-fiction case of New York real estate scion Robert Durst and the never-solved 1982 disappearance of his wife, All Good Things turns out to be a lot weirder than even the pulpiest of fiction.
Durst stand-in David Marks (Ryan Gosling) is a poor little rich boy who falls in love with the working-class Katie (Kirsten Dunst). He takes a demoralizing job with his dad’s firm, but things go from bad to worse to scary for the young couple. Katie wants to study medicine. She’d also like to start a family. But neither idea sits well with David. After Katie gets pregnant (oops!), he browbeats her into getting an abortion. And after discovering that she’s secretly applied to med school, David goes ballistic. Soon, Katie disappears, seemingly into thin air. The film spans more than 30 years. The rich material could have been the stuff of a craptastic Lifetime movie, but All Good Things brings gravity to even the most outrageous moments.
