The Talented Mr Ripley - Blu-ray Preview

The Talented Mr Ripley

Preview by Jack Foley

TO BE young and carefree amid the blue waters and idyllic landscape of sun-drenched Italy in the late 1950s; that’s la dolce vita Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) craves – and Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law) leads.

When Dickie’s father, a wealthy ship builder, asks Tom to bring his errant playboy son back home to America, Dickie and his beautiful expatriate girlfriend, Marge Sherwood (Gwyneth Paltrow), never suspect the dangerous extremes to which Ripley will go to make their lifestyle his own.

After all, it’s better to be a fake somebody than a real nobody…

The Talented Mr Ripley, directed by Anthony Minghella, was released in 1999 and was nominated for five Oscars, including Best Supporting Actor for Law.

The star-studded cast also includes Cate Blanchett, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jack Davenport, James Rebhorn, Sergio Rubini and Philip Baker Hall.

The Talented Mr Ripley is released by Miramax for the first time on Blu-ray on Monday, September 19, 2011.
