There Are Two Sides to Every Lie. You've got to see this. We've been asked to elusively debut this poster for Indomina's release of documentary The Imposter, directed by Bart Layton, about the French con-artist Frederic Bourdin, who posed as a 16-year-old missing kid and was taken back to Texas. We've been teasing/hyping this doc, because it debuted at Sundance and wowed both Ethan and I. The film is playing in limited theaters now, arriving in LA this weekend, and deserves to be seen as soon as possible. It's one of those you have to see it to believe it, and even then you almost don't believe it either (watch the trailer). This is an official, but alternate, design from the original poster, which also looks good. Check it out in full below!
Originally from the Sundance guide: "Like his canny subject, gifted filmmaker Bart Layton (interviewed here) pulls off an astonishing coup. Buoyed by eye-catching dramatizations and an enthralling structure that crisscrosses time and place, The Imposter unfolds as a gripping thriller that leaves us dizzy, yet certain that truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction." The documentary played at the Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Film Festival before it was acquired by Indomina Releasing for US distribution this year. The Imposter was released limited on July 13th earlier this month, but is just hitting the Nuart Theater in LA this weekend.
