Not only is it an elegantly polished affair, with top notch performances all round, and magnificent camerawork and editing, it’s also acutely aware of how class, money and sex shape desire and resentment.

To complement our screening of Plein Soleil, the first screen adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel, we thought it’d be worth revisited this acclaimed, more recent version.

Matt Damon plays brilliantly against type as psychopathic identity thief Tom Ripley. The excellent supporting cast includes Jude Law, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett.
