Corrected entry: When the American inspector shows Tom the license plates found in Dickie's luggage (near the end of the movie), the larger plate has '2007' on the bottom. One of the numbers must be facing the wrong way, because no matter which way the plate is turned, either the 2 or the 7 is always upside down.
Factual error: A copy of Miles Davis' album "Tutu" is sitting on a counter. Odd since the recording wasn't made until 1986.
Tom Ripley: You're the brother I never had. I'm the brother you never had. I would do anything for you, Dickie.
Question: At the end of the movie, when Tom finds out that Meredith is on the boat, he wants to kill either her or Peter because they both believe different stories about him and might run into each other. Is there any reason why he chose to kill Peter?
