Can't believe this is a true story. FascinatingBy sean1970 (42 reviews) , 07 Sep 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Was not sure I was going to enjoy this movie as it is a documentary movie, but was so glad I went to see it as it is one of the most intruiging and suspenseful movies of the year and the outcome comes across as a thriller more than a hard fact documentary.
Nicholas is a normal 13 year old when he disappeared in 1994 from his home in Texas.
When he is reported found 3 years in Spain later he would have been 16 years old. His family are overjoyed when he returns home but with stories of kidnap and torture. But why does he have a strange accent and different coloured eyes and why do the family insist on believing the stranger is their son. Investigators start asking questions that turns the tale a dark and strange turn.
Based on a true story with original interviews from the family of the missing boy, the boy himself and investigators, this is no documentary movie as it mixes pure suspense and thrills. Unmissable.

what a horrible wee manBy kartum (211 reviews) from west lothian , 13 Feb 2013This is a really good and interesting documentary that kept you guesssing until the end - well worth a watch
Excellent Time SpentBy a customer , 12 Feb 2013An excellent film - cleverly directed and excellent plot, I cannot believe it has not been more popular or suggested to me before. I've told everyone I know to watch it. Not the happiest of watches but thoroughly enjoyable due to the fascinating nature of this real life story.

Unbelievable, if it weren't true!!!By Cliffoutis (11 reviews) from London , 08 Feb 2013stick with this one - as once you've accepted that this is a documentary style film you will find it quite captivating. Based on a true-story that really could only happen in the good old USofA!!
