The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Coming Out at 25 December 1999 in theaters.

Crime, Drama, Thriller

The Talented Mr. Ripley is psychological thriller film written and directed by Anthony Minghella. An adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1955 novel of the same name, the film stars Matt Damon as Tom Ripley, Jude Law as Dickie Greenleaf, Gwyneth Paltrow as Marge Sherwood, Cate Blanchett as Meredith Logue, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as Freddie Miles.

The novel was previously filmed twice. In 1957, a one-hour version was produced for the TV anthology series Studio One, directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, though no recording survives. In 1960, a full-length film version was released, entitled Purple Noon and directed by René Clément, starring Alain Delon in his first major role. Claude Chabrol’s 1968 film Les biches uses many elements of Highsmith’s novel but switches the gender of the main characters.

The Talented Mr. Ripley was a critical and commercial success. It received five Academy Award nominations, including Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Law.
