Why watch this film?
"Girl in the Picture" is essentially a true crime documentary that attempts to solve the mystery surrounding the death of a young woman from Oklahoma. The narrative is a kind of labyrinth, where neither the protagonists nor the audience seem to find an exit due to the irregularities and secrets surrounding the case. Director and cinematographer Skye Borgman ("Unsolved Mysteries") puts together a difficult puzzle that steers away from sensationalism to present new clues and suspicions, with a consistent and calculated pace that constantly reminds us of the existence of an unexplainable evil in the world.
A young mother's mysterious death and her son's subsequent kidnapping blow open a decades-long mystery about the woman's true identity, and the murderous federal fugitive at the center of it all.
