Ripley's movie review

The story is interesting and the acting is good with Kinski and Johansson playing their parts well. It's not too heavy on the 'America is the greatest country in the world' aspect; instead it focuses on cultural differences and the search for a sense of belonging. Not a great movie but it's alright.
