Based on the Patricia Highsmith novel, this tense thriller follows in the mould of a previous Highsmith adaptation The Talented Mr Ripley, which takes in a rich and beautiful American couple and glamorous international locations.
Viggo Mortensen is Chester MacFarland, a con-man holidaying in Greece with his wife Collete, played by Kirsten Dunst. While there, they meet American tour guide and scamartist Rydal (Inside Llewyn Davis’ Oscar Isaac). When Chester asks Rydal to help him dispose of the body of a private detective who has come to investigate him, the trio become dangerously entangled as they attempt to flee the authorities.
