The Talented Mr. Ripley

A shot from Anthony Minghella's 1999 film, The Talented Mr. Ripley. If, for some reason, you didn't want to sit through the whole thing, this shot would sum things up nicely. Put in crude terms, Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) wants to be Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law).

Understandable when you look like this...

...and Jude Law looks like this. Interestingly enough, in purely superficial terms, their roles seem to have reversed in the decade or so since the film's release.
