The Talented Mr. Ripley

The Talented Mr. Ripley

To be young and carefree amid the blue waters and idyllic landscape of sun-drenched Italy in the late 1950's, that's la dolce vita that Tom Ripley, the con artist, craves - and Dickie Greenleaf, the rich playboy, leads. When Dickie's father, a wealthy industrialist, commissions Ripley to bring his errant son back home to America, Dickie and his beautiful expatriate girlfriend never suspect the dangerous extremes to which Ripley will go to make their lifestyle his own. Based on the screenplay by Renee Clement and Paul Gegauff for the French theatrical motion picture entitled "PLEIN SOLEIL" (aka PURPLE SUN) - a classic thriller that starred Alain Delon under Renee Clement's direction in 1960. Nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Supporting Actor, Best Art Direction, Costume Design, Original Score and Best Adapted Screenplay.
  • Rated R For violence, language and brief nudity.
