Summary: Originally watched this on VUDU and wasn't expecting it to leave me speechless. I wasn't able to repeat this story to friends and family all I could do was suggest they see it. Luckily I found it at Walmart and now I can show it to everyone. This film will leave you speechless. Life is stranger than fiction.
Conclusion: a documentary style presentation based on a real-life event. 'nicholas barclay' had been missing for three and a half years.......until he is supposedly found in 'spain' the change in his appearance he explains as a result of years of abuse by his captor's. the family wanted so much to believe 'nicholas' had come home, the obvious is brushed aside by them. the guy wanted a better life, when truly identified, he turned out to be a 'serial' imposter.
Conclusion: Although I really enjoyed this film I do think I was slightly misled as to what I would be watching, it presents itself as a standard movie structure but is actually a documentary with brief dramatisations thrown in - so (just to be clear) it's the people involved talking about what happened - I think this distinction should have been clearly pointed out in the blurb! Sometimes I'm not in the mood for a documentary. However the story is fascinaing and kept me glued.
Conclusion: Really enjoyed this - without giving too much away, this is a really strange but true story involving a trickster who managed to lie his way into a family who's son went missing.I kept thinking how crazy this all was as this should never have been allowed to happen.All concerned here are guilty stupidity.I am not sure this would be a film/doc i would go back to in time.
