Ripley's Game: Starring John Malkovich.
Title character Tom Ripley is the literary invention of Patricia Highsmith. Perhaps then there is symmetry in a woman director bringing Ripley to life onscreen. He is cool, urbane and very probably a sociopath with murderous tendencies – and somehow you want to root for him. 110 minutes. Rated R.
