The ImposterDirected by Bart Layton
U.K., 2011, 95 min.
Three and a half years after a 13-year-old boy disappears from his home in Texas, he is found alive, in Spain. Disoriented and quivering with fear, he divulges his shocking story of kidnap and torture. His family is overjoyed to bring him home. But all is not what it seems. He has the same tattoos, but he looks different, and he now speaks with a strange accent. Why doesn't the family seem to notice these glaring inconsistencies? When an investigator starts asking questions, this astounding story takes an even stranger turn and proves that truth is indeed stranger than fiction.
“This year’s Catfish...an engrossing, on-the-edge-of-your-seat thriller.”
