An old flick we know, but it's almost a classic this stage. It tells the story of a man (Matt Damon) who is sent to Italy to persuade a businessman's spoiled son (Jude Law) to return home. However, he gets quite attached to the high life while there and decides to get in on the action - first by befriending the rich and beautiful people (who include Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett), and then by taking the drastic measure of assuming his new-found friend's identity.... hence why he is the ever so talented Mr Ripley... master of disguise! No wonder they cast him as that Jason Bourne fella.
