Most of Highsmith's novels were adapted for the big screen, including The Talented Mr. Ripley and the radical, partly autobiographical, Carol. Excerpts from these are interwoven with fascinating archive material and revealing notes from her private writings to create a vivid, touching portrait of one of the most fascinating female writers.
