The ImposterWhat if your 13-year-old son went missing? What if he was found three years? But what if he was different? That’s what happened to the subject of the acclaimed documentary The Imposter.

Director Bart Layton (TV’s Locked Up Abroad) follows the story of San Antonio, Texas-native Nicholas Barclay, who went missing on June 13, 1994, his 13th birthday, without a trace. On Oct. 7, 1997, he was reported found, thousands of miles away in Spain. Nicholas said he had been kidnapped and tortured.

His family are understandably thrilled to have Nicholas home. However, even though this boy looks like the Nicholas that wen missing, they start to see differences. When an investigator starts asking questions, things get even stranger.

The Imposter only ran in limited theaters, but impressed critics. The R-rated film garnered 96% approval from critics, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie won Best Documentary at the British Independent Film Awards, as well as nominated for other honors.
