Synopsis: Frank Abagnale, Jr. (Di Caprio) worked as a doctor, a lawyer, as a co-pilot for a major airline - all before his 18th birthday. A master of deception, he was always a brilliant forger whose skill gave him his first real claim to fame. At the age of 17, Frank became the most successful bank robber in the United States, FBI Agent Carl Hanratty (Hanks) had made it his prime mission to capture Frank and bring him to justice, but Frank is always one step ahead of him, baiting him to continue the chase. Based on a true story from 1969
How many times have you tried running away from something? Well, "this true story of a real fake", Frank Abagnale Jr. is a film of deception, creativity, fraud, creativity, crime, creativity. Spielberg is again telling us a lot of things. But one thing is sure, he was able to get our attention for the umpteenth time for a film's storyline that seemed to be ordinary (and overly used) but since it was Spielberg-sealed it was given a Seal of Excellence. But hats off to Leo and Tom, ordinary stories turn to a great one. Catch Steven if you can....he again pulled a caper with this film.
