Ripley's movie review

I haven't read the book (didn't even know what it was about) so I can only judge this movie as a movie, not as an adaptation. Hunnam was easy on the eyes but a little too... formal? earnest? Some combination of the two. The supporting cast was great though and the story was entertaining. I really enjoyed it.
