Dickie Greenleaf, one third of The Talented Mr. Ripley trio is a sad case. On the run from his family and fortune waiting for him in the states, he travels Europe seeking solace with his friend Marge. His father, seeking his son returned, enlists the help of con-artist Tom Ripley to bring him home safely. Tom travels across the atlantic to track Dickie down and they quickly become friends. While Dickie is welcoming of the friendship, Marge is suspicious and untrusting of Mr. Ripley. Slowly, Tom forms an obsession with Dickie and his lifestyle. After an odd episode where Dickie catches Tom impersonating him, the pair travel to Italy together to ease the tension. As an aside, if you catch somebody imitating you and becoming obsessed with you, do not travel to Italy with them. Ripley’s psychotic side gets the better of him and he murders Dickie to assume his identity. What follows for Ripley is a life of constant fear that he will be reprimanded for the crime. Dumbass.

Everybody has come across a Veruca Salt in their lives. You know the type: bitchy, rich and ungrateful. Makes me mad just thinking about it. You’ll remember Veruca from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, she’s the greedy brat that always wants more. First she wants a golden ticket, then she wants a golden goose then she starts yammering on about some bean feast and 10,000 tons of ice cream. Of course, like all imbalanced children that visit Willie Wonka’s factory, she gets her just desserts AND I AIN’T TALKIN’ CHOCOLATE.

Dominique Francon is the heroine of The Fountainhead and seems to be the only woman in the world made for the protagonist and architect Howard Roark. Likewise, he seems to be the only man for her. You know, it’s funny, both Howard and Dominique have this contempt for people around them. They feel like nobody measures up to their own personal standards of design or of life. Yet somehow, they’re both lovable. Dominique is admirable because she realizes that in life she has nobody to answer to but herself and doesn’t have to worry about how others value or judge her. Once she picks that up, she finds total and utter happiness. She’s right you know, who gives a shit?
