The Getty family is endlessly fascinating, and at the heart of this feature-length documentary. Three generations of Gettys talk about the dynasty and its immense influence on the art world.
Of course, shedloads of money helps. When he died, oil billionaire J Paul Getty left the largest financial legacy in history to an art museum.
His son, Paul Jr, went on to become one of the most generous patrons of art in British history while another son, Gordon, became a composer and grandson Mark founded the Getty Images media empire.
The men talk about art and family tumults, including the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III in 1973 – subject of the recent film All the Money in the World.
Documentary looking at the cultural impact of the Gettys, who speak about their personal milestones in art collecting and philanthropy. They also discuss some of the family nightmares that have shaped common public perceptions of them, most infamously the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III in 1973.
