In The Talented Mr Ripley, to be young and carefree amid the waters and landscape of Italy in the late 1950s is the life Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) craves - and Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law) leads. So when Dickies father, a wealthy ship-builder, asks Tom to bring his son back to America, all Toms dreams have come true! Dickie and his beautiful expatriate girlfriend, Marge Sherwood (Gwyneth Paltrow), become Toms best friends, they are inseparable.

Tom likes everything Dickie likes, does everything Dickie does, then one day Dickie announces he is bored with Tom, but never suspects the dangerous extremes to which Tom will go to. After all, its better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody.

The Talented Mr Ripley is a great movie, certainly deserving of all the exposure it got at the time! And still well worth watching!
