Catch Me If You Can

DiCaprio plays real-life all-American con artist Frank Abagnale, Jr., a teenager in the 1960s who made millions while variously posing as a pilot, a lawyer and a doctor. Hanks is the dogged FBI agent who chases Abagnale around the world and an Oscar-nominated Walken plays Abagnale’s father. Spielberg’s typically fleet-footed direction keeps this caper/character study fascinating throughout. John Williams’ Oscar-nominated score returns the composer to his jazz roots.
