Older. Wiser. More talented. How to transform an innocent in an assassin? This is the diabolic game of Tom Ripley (John Malkovich). After years of living a calm existence, finds his complacency shaken when he is scorned at a local party. When he meets Jonathan, an honest family man, he draws him into a spiral of violence and murder that even provokes a war between Mafiosi and rival gangs. Yet as soon as Ripley's game is almost over, the unlikely relationship linking the manipulator to his victim produces unforeseen developments.
