A true story about Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully conned millions of dollars worth of checks as a Pan Am pilot, doctor, and legal prosecutor. An FBI agent makes it his mission to put him behind bars. But Frank not only eludes capture, he revels in the pursuit.Written by
Brilliant source material expertly translated to the big screen
A thoroughly enjoyable and often hilarious film that manages to avoid any level of pretentiousness or ostentation. DiCaprio is mesmerising in the lead role and there is a something of a breakthrough performance by a young Amy Adams. The film is maybe a touch too long and Christopher Walken is a little bit too Christopher Walken but this is generally what a Hollywood blockbuster should look, feel and sound like.
