The Imposter

September 3, 2012

 

It sounds like a very typical movie… a thirteen year old boy disappears from his hometown in Texas and three years later he is discovered in Spain.  But all is not as it appears…

Except The Imposter is based on a true story, making this a documentary, and yet somehow it’s more gripping than any Hitchcock thriller.  Without wanting to give too much away, the movie probes at the very heart of memory – whether it be the actions of a disturbed criminal or a grief-stricken family – and explores their respective motivations.  I highly recommend it.
