The new series will focus on scenes of Venice in three films to be presented on consecutive Wednesday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. in August. On Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law and Cate Blanchette star in the Anthony Minghella thriller The Talented Mr. Ripley. Set in the 1950s, a lavatory attendant, Tom Ripley (Damon), borrows a Princeton jacket to play piano at a garden party. When the wealthy father of a recent Princeton graduate meets Tom, he pretends to know the son, Dickie Greenleaf, and is offered $1,000 to go to Italy and convince him to return home. While in Italy, Tom finds Dickie (Law) and goes to extreme lengths to make Greenleaf's privileges his own. Admission to these films is $5 for museum and OLLI members and $8 for non-members. Join the museum to immediately qualify for member benefits. Please register in advance at www.mattatuckmuseum.org or call (203) 753-0381, ext. 10.
