By Joanna Murray-Smith
Directed by Dan Foster
With Daniel Petzold and Peggy J. Scott
It’s 1995 in the Swiss Alps, and the reclusive crime writer Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train, The Price of Salt) is visited by a genial young man, sent by her New York publisher to convince her to write the final installment of her best-selling Mr. Ripley series.
What first appears to be a standard cat-and-mouse game of wit and wiles soon becomes a dance to the death. Who is the cat and who is the mouse? And who will make it out of Switzerland alive?
