The Talented Mr. Ripley
To be young and carefree amid the blue waters and idyllic landscape of sun-drenched Italy in the late 1950s; that's la dolce vita Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) craves- and Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law) leads. When Dickie's father asks Tom to bring his errant playboy son back home to America, Dickie and his beautiful expatriate girlfriend, Marge Sherwood (Gwyneth Paltrow), never suspect the dangerous extremes to which Ripley will go to make their lifestyle his own.

- "The sumptuous production, eclectic score, grand performances and engrossing moments of suspense make RIPLEY one the year's finer offerings."

- "Minghella puts us inside RIPLEY's head, inviting us to share his envy and giddy excitement even as we recognize his warped need to be someone he's not."
- "THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY slithers along with great elegance and purpose for most of Ripley's reign, stumbling only at the end when Minghella trips on the limitations imposed by his own updated psychoanalysis."
