The Talented Mr Ripley
Set on the Italian islands of Ischia and Procida, just off the Amalfi Coast, as well as Palermo and Venice, The Talented Mr Ripley is drenched in golden sunshine, la dolce vita and a spot of crime. Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) is paid by a shipbuilding tycoon to bring back his entitled, privileged son, Dickie (Jude Law) back from Italy. Enamoured by the moneyed, carefree and luxurious life that Dickie leads, Ripley became obsessed by his new friend and the storyline takes a sinister turn. Sun, sex and jazz; The Talented Mr Ripley is an Oscar-winning classic.
