Synopsis

This is one of those films that had to be based on a true story - because otherwise you just wouldn't believe it. Frank Abagnale Jr was still a teenager when he successfully started convincing people that he was an airline pilot, then a lawyer, and then a doctor. As Frank lived it up on forged cheques, the FBI spent years chasing him around the world - but they always seemed to be stuck one step behind their elusive prey. Director Steven Spielberg's snappy film captures both the dizzy excitement that Frank must have felt about getting away with it - and the loneliness of living behind a series of huge lies.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
