Ross Maclean’s review:
A simply stunning documentary based on an unbelievable true story about a French conman who assumed the identity of a missing Texan schoolboy, fooling his family and the authorities in the process. It’s a difficult subject matter made accessible by the extremely cinematic way it has been handled. Reconstructions, interviews and archive videos are presented but we’re ultimately left to draw our own conclusions. It is fascinating stuff which compels you to scratch beneath the surface and see what it’s asking of you.
