Magnolia Releases “Things” In December

Earlier this year it looked like the film might unfortunately be headed direct-to-DVD. Now, Magnolia Pictures has acquired U.S. rights to Andrew Jarecki’s “All Good Things” and have announced a December theatrical release.

The love story and murder mystery is set against the backdrop of a New York real estate dynasty in the 1980s and is inspired by the case of Robert Durst, a wealthy scion who was suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie who disappeared in 1982 and was never found.

Jarecki says the Durst case was used “as the skeleton and inspiration for a drama about love, family, and obsession… 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.”

Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella star in the feature. Marc Smerling and Marcus Hinchey penned the script.
