The Talanted Mr Ripley
Director: Anthony Minghella
Run Time: 139 minutes, Certificate: ,
Based upon Patricia Highsmith's psychological thriller, this has more twists and turns than the mountain roads of its Italian Riviera setting. Matt Damon is hired to persuade errant playboy Jude Law to give up 'la dolce vita' and return home, but he wants the sweet life, (plus the attractions of Gwyneth Paltrow & Cate Blanchett), for himself. Glossy, gripping, stuff.
Average score 7.61
