Adapted from one of Patricia Highsmith's most famous novels, Matt Damon stars as the titular Mr Ripley, a struggling young man in 1950s New York. A low-level schemer, when Ripley is mistaken for a Princeton grad at a party by a wealthy older man named Herbert Greenleaf, he goes along with the story and agrees to travel to Italy to persuade Greenleaf's son — an actual Princeton grad named Dickie (Jude Law) — to return to America. When he gets there, the lies come thick and fast as he becomes embroiled in the lives of Dickie and his fiancée Marge (Gwyneth Paltrow) who both live a life he so desires.

Why You Should See This Film

A first-rate, sumptuously photographed modern thriller, The Talented Mr Ripley features fantastic performances by its stars and supporting players, including a young Cate Blanchett and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Universally praised and awarded upon its release, its tense and criminally stylish thrills have only improved with age.
