The Talented Mr. Ripley
Nominated for five Academy Awards The Talented Mr. Ripley was filmed against the backdrop of landmarks in Venice and Rome.
Matt Damon stars as Tom Ripley, a young man hired to travel to Italy and retrieve a wealthy man’s rambling son, Dickie Greenleaf, played by Jude Law. This simple task is quickly complicated as Ripley’s interactions with Greenleaf and his friends fuel a growing resentment among them. When Ripley commits an unpardonable crime, the ensuing chain of events forces him into a tangled world of identity theft and murder. The stellar cast also includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Based on a 1955 novel by Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train). (139 mins., 35mm)
