Release Date:

Honoured with five Academy Award nominations including Best Supporting Actor Jude Law and Best Adapted Screenplay, this suspense-filled thriller features memorable performances from Oscar winning stars Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) and Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare In Love).

Living a life of leisure on the sun-drenched coast of Italy, young Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law, eXistenZ, Gattaca) has it all: friends, the love of a beautiful woman (Paltrow) and the best things his father`s money can buy. Tom Ripley (Damon), on the other hand, has nothing but charm, good looks... and a deadly obsession to take over this rich mans life!

In another landmark motion picture from Adademy Award winning director Anthony Minghella (The English Patient, 1996), a riveting game of stolen identity unfolds with Ripley`s desperate attempts to stay one step ahead of ever-growing suspicion!

This is such a great film. but, you don`t really want to know much about the film do you? you want to know about extras and stuff. so here goes. full length commentry from anthony mighella is very interesting but i woud have prefered it if jude law and matty boy damon did some as well. there are two trailers one teaser and one theatrical that are both fun to wath before watching the movie, and making of documentry, two music videos and a moking of the soundtrack thingy that i am yet to see. the extras aren`t really going to persuade you to buy this movie like t2: ultimate did for me but if you like the film then why not buy it?

oh, and by the way, scene access isn`t a bonus feature in my book.
