Based on a true story, The Imposter is documentary filmmaking turned film noir. In 1994, a 13-year-old boy disappeared without a trace from San Antonio, Texas. Three-and-a-half years later he is found alive thousands of miles away in a village in southern Spain, telling an elaborate story of kidnap and torture.
His family is overjoyed to have him back, but everything may not be as it seems. His strange accent and changes in appearance all seem to be suspicious inconsistencies, yet the family seems not to notice. It’s only when an investigator starts asking questions that this story takes an even stranger turn. With all of the twists of a true thriller, The Imposter challenges our perceptions of the truth, and every new revelation leaves the viewer on the edge of their seat.
