Art connoisseur, harpsichord aficionado, master of souffles and genius of improvisational murder, Ripley, played by John Malkovich (BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, THE SHADOW OF A VAMPIRE) finds his complacency shaken when he is scorned at a local party. While any ordinary sociopath might repay the insult with some mild act of retribution, the game Ripley has in mind is far subtler, and infinitely more sinister.
John Malkovich plays the high-living, amoral Tom Ripley, said to "detest killing unless it's absolutely necessary". The victim of his devious game is Jonathan Trevanny, played by Dougray Scott (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II, ENIGMA). Their companions in the story are Sara (Lena Headey - THE REMAINS OF THE DAY) and Luisa, (Chiara Caselli - DARIO ARGENTO'S NON HO SONNO aka I CAN'T SLEEP). Rounding out the cast is veteran British actor Ray Winstone (NIL BY MOUTH, SEXY BEAST) who plays the hapless "fixer" Reeves, Ripley's sometime companion in crime.
