Overview
Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Cate Banchett electrify the screen in the riveting thriller from Oscar® -winning director Anthony Minghella (The English Patient). Matt Damon "gives one of the year's most extraordinary performances" (Premiere) as Tom Ripley, a calculating young man who believes it's better to be a fake somebody and a real nobody. Opportunity knocks in the form of a wealthy American shipbuilder who hires Tom to travel to Italy to bring back his playboy son, Dickie (Law). Ripley worms his way into the idyllic lives of Dickie and his girlfriend (Paltrow), plunging into a daring scheme of duplicity, lies and murder.
