This year the classic French thriller Plein Soleil has been remastered in 4K and re-released in cinemas. Now, this new restoration is heading for Blu-ray disc and The Edge has teamed up with StudioCanal to offer three lucky readers the chance to win a copy.
Alain Delon plays Tom Ripley, a young man with very little money to his name. He is charismatic and charming and knows how to manipulate people. At the start of the film he is in Rome spending time with his attractive friend Philippe Greenleaf. Tom has been commissioned by Philippe’s father to bring his son back home, but the two young men never really go back home. They spend time in the sun, on Philippe’s boat with Marge, his beautiful partner, and enjoy their lives. Things start to spiral out of control when a prank during a sailing trip goes horribly wrong, leading a nightmarish situation that forces Tom to commit a series of crimes.
To get your hands on a copy of the film on Blu-ray disc, answer the following question:
Plein Soleil is based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith. What was the name of that novel?
a) The Talented Mr Ripley
b) Ripley’s Game
c) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
