In a rural Texas town, a thirteen-year-old boy goes missing after school. Years later, thousands of miles and an ocean away in Spain, the family gets the call that their child is still alive. We will leave you in the dark about the twists and turns that mark this new thriller, and will say only that it defies experience and challenges what we think we know about human motivation. Without a frivolous or extraneously showy moment, The Imposter elevates visual storytelling in nonfiction cinema, with rich information and emotion bursting from every frame.
"The year's most fascinating and frightening doc so far, The Imposter delves far beneath the hysterical tabloid headlines." (Guy Lodge, Empire)
