Overview

As played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks in the 2002 movie adaptation, Catch Me If You Can depicts the life of Frank William Abagnale Jr. with wit, accuracy, and excitement.

When his parents' marriage, family life, and father's successful business broke apart at age 16, Frank ran away from home, deciding to venture out on his own. For the next five years, he lived a life most people wouldn't even dare to dream of, faking his identity to embody a pilot and many other incongruous roles. Here's the story of the most famous con-man in the world - so you can learn from his skills but also his mistakes.

"It's not what a man has, but what a man is, that's important. I know who I am and what I am, and that's what counts, not what other people think of me."
