  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 95 min.

The Imposter is a chilling factual thriller that chronicles the story of a 13-year-old boy who disappears without a trace from San Antonio, Texas in 1994. Three and a half years later he is found alive, thousands of miles away in a village in southern Spain with a story of kidnapping and torture. His family is overjoyed to bring him home. But all is not quite as it seems. The boy bears many of the same distinguishing marks he always had, but why does he now have a strange accent? Why does he look so different? Any why doesn’t the family seem to notice these glaring inconsistencies? It’s only when an investigator starts asking questions that this strange tale takes an even stranger turn. The stranger than fiction mystery, which features many twists and turns, is told in a cinematic language that combines documentary and stylized visualizations. Perception is challenged at every turn, and just as the truth begins to dawn on you, another truth merges leaving you even more on edge. (Indomina Releasing)

"One of the best films of the year."
- Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"The year's most fascinating and frightening doc so far, The Imposter delves far beneath the hysterical tabloid headlines."
- Guy Lodge, Empire
"The documentary equivalent of a page-turner."
- Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"A mesmerizing psychological thriller bulging with twists, turns, nasty insinuations and shocking revelations that might have leapt from the pages of a Patricia Highsmith novel, The Imposter is all the more astonishing because it actually happened."
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"One of the most entertaining documentaries to appear since "Exit Through the Gift Shop," a film similarly obsessed with role playing and deception."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
