“Seductive as it is suspenseful: a bracing study of amorality.”—Simon Kinnear, Total Film

Based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Talented Mr. Ripley, this first film adaptation is a chilling tale of deception starring the dashing Alain Delon as Ripley. Sent to Italy to convince his wealthy friend Philippe to return to the U.S., Ripley becomes obsessed with the life of leisure and entitlement his friend enjoys.

This obsession leads to a carefully enacted, cunning and violent crime spree, so Ripley can lead the life he feels he should have led all along. 1960, France, 35mm, in French and Italian with English subtitles, 117 minutes. Rated PG-13.
