Anna:  Hey Josh, I saw a movie the other week and I loved it!

Josh:  Oh yeah? What was it?

Anna:  Catch Me If You Can!

Josh:  That’s the new Steven Spielberg, right?

Anna:  Yeah, with Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Josh:  So you really loved, huh? What’d you like about it?

Anna:  Um, it has been a long time since I’ve seen a movie where the bad guy is charming. He’s still a bad guy, but you just end up liking everybody. It was a very charming story.

Josh:  So, but Tom Hanks has to, like, hunt him down, right? But, who are you rooting for? I mean, you love Tom Hanks, you love Leonardo DiCaprio…

Anna:  You’re rooting for both, and I think that’s where Steven Spielberg does such a great job because you want the bad guy to succeed, cause he’s bringing down the man, and you want Tom Hanks to succeed because it’s right and wrong, and good and evil, and… I really enjoyed it!

Josh:  Sounds cool! I’ll check it out!

You need to see this movie. It’s so cool! Leonardo plays such a cool character. He’s just a kid, but he tricks lots of smart people into giving him money and then he has lots of fun traveling around the world.
Tom Hanks plays the bad guy in this movie, but he’s a likable bad guy. It’s fun to see Tom play a different character than he normally plays.
Check out Catch Me If You Can. It’s definitely one of the best films of the year.
See you at the movies!

Therefore the movie is based on ture story it's more interesting to watch. You don't belive what people can do to get rich, to survive or only make impression on somebody. On one side you can understand why they doing that, but on the other side you now, that's wrong.
