Watch: The Talented Mr. Ripley

 

Some of my favorite films have the ability to interweave style and substance and one example of this is from the 1999 film, “The Talented Mr. Ripley”. The psychological thriller starring Matt Damon, Jude Law, and Gwyneth Paltrow. The film follows Damon as Tom Ripley, who is struggling to make ends meet in 1950s New York City, when he  is mistaken as a former class mate of Law’s character, Dickie Greenleaf, sent to Italy to go and persuade him to come back to the United States, and gets wrapped in the wealthy and decadent lives of Greenleaf and his girlfriend,Marge, played by Paltrow. This story of mistaken and stolen identity follows Ripley as he gets caught up in this new lifestyle in more  ways than he could possibly imagine, leading to several twist and turns throughout the film. It was nominated for 5 Academy Awards, including art direction and costume design, and rightful so. The fashion, the picturesque background of Venice, Italy, and the gripping story play a part in this captivating movie. It is definitely worth watching.
