Film Details

Cleveland premiere!


Germany, Switzerland | 2022 | Eva Vitija


American author Patricia Highsmith (1921-1995) wrote the novels that became such celebrated movies as Strangers on a Train, The Talented Mr. Ripley, The American Friend, Purple Noon, and Carol. But like her most popular character Tom Ripley, Highsmith led a double life—keeping her lesbianism hidden from her family and fans. This new documentary, based on the author’s unpublished diaries and notebooks, and containing clips from the aforementioned film adaptations, reveals Highsmith’s secret loves. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 83 min.

General admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D.holders, and those age 25 & under $8.

Face masks, though always recommended, must be worn by filmgoers only when the CDC’s community risk level for Covid in Cuyahoga County is HIGH. Visit for the current community risk level and see the “Face Coverings” section for our detailed mask requirements.

As a reminder, filmgoers can park for free in Lot 73 and in the Institute's annex lot, and should enter CIA via nearby Entrance C. Click here for a map.
