Catch me if you can

Catch me if you can

ACADEMY Award-winner Steven Spielberg directs Catch Me If You Can -- a stylish and highly entertaining cat-and-mouse caper set in the 1960s.

Inspired by the true-to-life story of Frank Abagnale Jr, who managed to give a new meaning to job-hopping, he works as a doctor, a lawyer and an airline co-pilot -- all before his 21st birthday.

It all started when Abagnale's parents got separated. With only US$25 in his checking account, he sets off for Manhattan to escape the worries of strained home life. He also vows to bring his father and mother back together, and help his debt-ridden father.

Abagnale proves to be a brilliant forger and charming master of deception, and he scams his way through the United States and Europe, forging and encashing cheques to the tune of millions of dollars to fund his womanising, adventure-filled high life.

However, the FBI is soon hot on his tail and agent Carl Hanratty makes it his ultimate mission to bring down Abagnale.

 Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken (Best Actor in a Supporting Role nominee in the 2003 Academy Awards), Jennifer Garner and Martin Sheen. The film was also nominated for Best Original Score.
