At one point or another, all of us have probably fantasised about becoming someone else. But for young Tom Ripley, that's exactly what he sets out to achieve - using all his cunning and chameleon-like powers of reinvention to create a new identity for himself, and a new life too. When he encounters the wealthy, jazz-loving playboy Dickie Greenleaf at a sun-kissed Italian coastal resort, it seems like the start of a firm friendship - but soon, it looks like Tom doesn't just want to hang around with Dickie. He wants to become him - and he'll stop at nothing to get what he desires. This is a brilliantly-crafted, expertly creepy tale of obsession and identity, adapted from the novel by crime writer Patricia Highsmith.
