Catch Me If You Can
This Steven Spielberg crime comedy is based on the story of the true Frank Abagnale Jr., one of America’s most famous con artists. Sixteen-year-old Frank Abagnale Jr. (Leonardo DiCaprio) uses forgery and false identities — from a substitute French teacher to an emergency-room physician — to amass a fortune, attempting to regain his family’s financial status and bring his parents back together. Flying around the country as a fake airline copilot, Frank is tracked by no-nonsense FBI agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) in a chase that lasts for years. Frank falls in love with Brenda (Amy Adams) and dupes her father (Martin Sheen) in the process. Frank’s final phony occupation puts a strange twist on the story.
