The Imposter
First screened in August 2012
Director: Bart Layton. Documentary about a French-born man who successfully impersonated a missing American teenager, deceiving even the boy's immediate family. Interview subjects include Frédéric Bourdin, Carey Gibson, Beverly Dollarhide, and Charlie Parker. Cast: Adam O'Brian, Anna Ruben, Cathy Dresbach, Alan Teichman.
Twitter Capsule: Unforgettable story, enough to cover padding and awkwardness of form and some timidity of inquiry. A plum beach-read.
