In Detail

Five young programmers take over the Chichester International Film Festival for one night.

They have selected 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' as the first film in this exciting new initiative.

To be young and carefree amid the blue waters and idyllic landscape of sun-drenched Italy in the late 1950s; that's la dolce vita Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) craves - and Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law) leads. When Dickie's father asks Tom to bring his errant playboy son back home to America, Dickie and his beautiful expatriate girlfriend, Marge Sherwood (Gwyneth Paltrow), never suspect the dangerous extremes to which Ripley will go to make their lifestyle his own.

The menace builds as Tom’s deceptions pile up and the locations - Rome, Venice, cliffside Positano - are as gorgeous as the cast. With Damon's unsettling performance offering a darkly twisted counterpoint to Anthony Minghella's glossy direction, 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' is a suspense thriller that lingers.

In a brand new Festival initiative for 2022, we open our doors to five local young people to programme a Festival film, promote it, and host the event at Cineworld Chichester.

Our first TEEN TAKEOVER programmers are: Lyla Andrews; Phoebe Fairall; Laura Kiselyk-Molina; Amy Morris; and Sophie Wylam from Bishop Luffa School, Chichester.

The team have chosen THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY to start off, and will continue in the Autumn with further screenings at New Park. Our thanks to all our Festival Patrons, Film Hub South East and the BFI for supporting this exciting initiative.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but we have had to cancel this screening. Look out for the relaunch of the TEEN TAKEOVER later in the year.

Screening in Screen 3 at Cineworld Chichester
