Twenty-something Richard travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a strange map. Rumours state that it leads to a solitary beach paradise, a tropical bliss - excited and intrigued, he sets out to find it.
This short "Making of"/"Behind the Scenes" documentary begins with filmmaker Steven Spielberg welcoming "Leo" DiCaprio to "our family"; then, he and the crew drink some traditional champagne. Writer Frank W. Abagnale, subject of the film and autobiographical author of the adapted book, begins the story. Scripter Jeff Nathanson naturally takes over; and, the Walter F. Parkes production team takes us through the development of the "Catch Me If You Can" project. Mr. Spielberg describes the picture nicely as "slight of hand" and presides over a friendly, professional group. The director finds time, through designated documentary-maker Laurent Bouzereau, to credit the valuable work of designers Jeannine Oppewall and Mary Zophres.
**** Catch Me If You Can: Behind the Camera (5/6/03) Laurent Bouzereau ~ Steven Spielberg, Frank Abagnale Jr., Jeff Nathanson
