Catch Me If You Can

What's it about?

A true story about Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully conned millions of dollars worth of checks as a Pan Am pilot, doctor, and legal prosecutor. An FBI agent makes it his mission to put him behind bars.

Why do we love it?

A fast paced game of cat and mouse, it’s one of those too good to be true stories that makes for a wickedly entertaining film. The scope feels big and the stakes even more so, brilliantly crafted with memorable moments and engaging performances throughout.

Tom Hanks - Carl Hanratty

Christopher Walken - Frank Abagnale

Who made it?
