'Catch Me If You Can' is a based on the true story of Frank Abagnale, a conman and brilliant forger who as a teenager in the sixties amassed over $2m in stolen funds, jetsetted around the world for free masquerading as a co-pilot, bluffed his way as a hospital administrator for a year and toyed with the idea of becoming a lawyer after he passed the Louisiana bar exams. The FBI were onto him, and he was wanted in 26 different countries, but it took them nearly a decade to catch him as he managed to keep one step ahead of them.
Leonardo DiCaprio stars as the stylish James Bond-esque conman and his performance warrants the rave reviews it has been getting State-side. Tom Hanks is the dour FBI agent, Carl Hanratty, hot on his trail, and who, during the course of the film, develops into a surrogate father figure.
