Jarecki's "Good Things" Finally Lands for U.S. Release

An anticipated American movie is finally coming to theaters. U.S. rights to Andrew Jarecki’s “All Good Things” have been picked up by Magnolia Pictures.

In March, Jarecki bought back the film’s U.S. distribution rights from The Weinstein Company and now Magnolia plans a December release.

Starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst and Frank Langella, the film is inspired by the most notorious missing person’s case in New York history. “Good” 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, scion of the wealthy Durst family. Mr. Durst was suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie who disappeared in 1982 and was never found. The original script was developed by Jarecki, Marc Smerling, and Marcus Hinchey and written by Smerling and Hinchey.

“With ‘All Good Things’, Andrew 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 in a statement. “He has gotten amazing performances out of the entire ensemble and delivered a powerful motion picture.”
