If You Can
|By Mira Harber
Catch Me If You Can is based on the true-story by Frank
Abagnale, who successfully posed as a Pan-Am pilot for several years, an
Assistant District Attorney, a Sociology professor and Medical Doctor.
He also wrote about two and one-half million dollars in bogus checks -
and he did this all before he was 21!!!!!!! True story. This is the ultimate
American story - you can be anything you want to be, taken to its ultimate
Leonardo di Caprio plays the con man/boy hero wonderfully.
He is an absolutely believable 16 year-old who metamorphoses into debonair
airline pilot simply by donning the clothes and the attitude. Stephen Spielberg
directs. The sets and photography are totally fabulous and 60's kitsch
to the max. An engaging, cheerful film, Catch Me If You Can is the perfect
antidote to the winters gloom.
