The Imposter

A gripping thriller straight out of real life, The Imposter is an original film experience that walks the razor’s edge between true-crime documentary and stylish noir mystery. The twisting, turning tale begins with an unsettling disappearance–that of Nicholas Barclay, a 13 year-old Texas boy who vanishes without a trace. Three and a half years later, staggering news arrives: the boy has been found, thousands of miles from home in Spain, saying he survived a mind-boggling ordeal of kidnap and torture by shadowy captors. His family is ecstatic to have him back no matter how strange the circumstances–but things become far stranger once he returns to Texas. Though the family accepts him, suspicion surrounds the person who claims to be Nicholas. How could the Barclay’s blonde, blue-eyed son have returned with darker skin and eyes? How could his personality and even accent have changed so profoundly? Why does the family not seem to notice the glaring differences? And if this person who has arrived in Texas isn’t the Barclay’s missing child… who on earth is he?

99 minutes. Rated R. Film starts at 7:00 PM.

Meet before AND after the film by the staircase in the main lobby.

After the film we will walk to Red Hawk on S. State St. for drinks and conversation.

    This film definitely illustrates that reality can be more bizarre than fiction! Enjoyed meeting more members of the group.

    Intriguing story, fascinating character study with at least one big red herring!

    The power at my house keeps going off and on, due to what I'm not sure, and so I'm sadly not going to be attending the movie tonight. Boo-hoo! Was looking forward to attending!
