The Talented Mr. Ripley
About The Talented Mr. Ripley
The late Anthony Minghella (The English Patient) directs Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law in an adaptation of one of Patricia Highsmith’s most sinister and sardonic novels. Damon plays Tom Ripley, a walking metaphor for urbane corruption who weaves the spider web plot that results in a series of murderous cat and mouse games ensnaring both Paltrow and Law. The story was first adapted in 1960 as Purple Noon, directed by Rene Clement and starring Alain Delon.
