  • Set against a luxurious Italian backdrop, Anthony Minghella's suspenseful film follows Tom Ripley (Matt Damon), a young New York men's room attendant, who is befriended by the father of a spoiled playboy, Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law). Dickie's father sends Tom to track down his wayward son in Venice and return him to his family in America. Tom, whose talents include forgery and impersonating voices, charms his way into the lives of Dickie and his girlfriend Marge (Gwyneth Paltrow), where he experiences first hand how the other half lives. Tom's immediate attraction to Dickie makes apparent his desire to be anyone but himself, and as the friendship develops, his true character begins to emerge. As Dickie grows tired and suspicious of his new acquaintance, Tom sees his new life slipping away. Unwilling to return to his old lifestyle, he takes extreme measures in order to ensure his place in the privileged world that he has grown to love. Establishing an intricate web of lies, Tom himself seems to forget what is real and what is not.

    "...Gorgeous young swells....A soundtrack and cinematography as rich as crme de menthe..." - Rating: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...The performances here are stunning, with on-the-money turns by supporting actors Philip Seymour Hoffman...and Cate Blanchett..."
    Box Office

    "...A significant plot twist suddenly changes a heated psychological thriller into a low-key cat-and-mouse thriller....This overall better rendering coasts on the momentum of a terrific lead-in..."
    USA Today

    "...A wonderfully accomplished work....A beautifully mounted and directed film..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "Cate Blanchett and Philip Seymour Hoffman provide great color in character roles."

    Mr. Damon gives a remarkable performance as the endlessly needy and mendacious Tom Ripley, and hes surrounded by a splendid cast...
