Recommendation Weekly #5: Catch Me If You Can: A classic-holiday thriller.

Aakash Mishra

Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken

 

Director: Steven Speilberg

 

Synopsis:

It’s 1960, Frank Abagnale Jr. idolizes his father a lot. But, his father is in some trouble with the IRS. When his parents separate, Frank, runs away to Manhattan with $25 and is determined to regain all the losses of his dad and wants his parents to get back together. Along the journey, he posed as a pilot, pediatrician, and attorney. Through all this, he makes $4,00,000 in bad debts and the FBI is after him.

 

Thoughts:

This is a legendary crime thriller with great actors like Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio. The film pitches itself as a holiday movie with scenes of Christmas celebrations. Based on a true story, this film is so well-paced and so different from other Speilberg films. Much of the fun in the film comes from the strategies devised by Frank Jr. and how he fools the world. It’s a classic and a must-watch which is now streaming on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video as well as Jio TV.
