Lost Girls Trailer

"I've been dismissed and ignored, but one thing I won't be is silenced." Netflix has revealed the first official trailer for the investigation drama Lost Girls, which is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival later this month. Lost Girls is based on the true story of Mari Gilbert, adapted from the non-fiction book by Robert Kolker investigating what might be going on and why the cops aren't helping. When Mari Gilbert's daughter disappears, police inaction drives her own investigation right into the gated Long Island community where Shannan was last seen. Her search brings attention to over a dozen murdered sex workers. Amy Ryan stars as Mari Gilbert, with a full cast including Thomasin McKenzie, Lola Kirke, Oona Laurence, Gabriel Byrne, Miriam Shor, Kevin Corrigan, Dean Winters, & Austyn Johnson. A very powerful first look.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Liz Garbus' Lost Girls, direct from Netflix's YouTube:

For sure, shiboleth. Read my comments above. Cheers...or not as this is really going to be a rough viewing...but will be so good as to be worth it.

No worries, I will like this. I remember this actress from some other films or seriesa and I have no problem with watching her in a real and serious film. But thanks for encouragement...

Cheers. She was good in Gone Baby Gone and also a film taking place in Iraq titled Green Zone opposite Matt Damon and directed by the Bourne director Paul Greengrass...a film I really liked. Both these mentioned films are pretty serious. She's amazing playing a really rough, poor woman in Gone Baby Gone.

I remember both of those films and I liked them. But also, her role in the series The Wire (she was there for two seasons, but still, made impression on me there). So, of course, no need to question her, she's good...

You know, I never really watched The Wire for some reason. I probably gave it a chance and didn't like it. I had the same reaction to Mad Men, The Sopranos, and Breaking Bad. I just didn't like any of those shows. Oh well. I like what I like and don't like what I don't like and by now I'm sure you know I don't care what people think about my tastes...lol...

I guess that's ok too (and it was never a problem with me, anyway). By the way, I managed to watch Child 44 on Friday and I must agree with you about it being a good one. Yes, Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace did their jobs right, but the film itself doesn't rely much on Hollywood stereotypes which is ok. Of course, some things could be always better, but there's enough better things in this than in so many films today. And no, I have no problem with gritty if it's done good. Which is what I saw here. So, another cool thing from you, Bo. Cheers there in that respect ...

Glad you liked Child 44, shiboleth. I agree that most movies could be better, or my way of thinking about it is the fact of how difficult it is to make a flawless film. There is so much involved in writing it, shooting it, then editing it to turn out something near perfect. Still, there are films like this one that one can take away more from it than having it just not being very good.

As soon as I saw Amy Ryan's picture I knew I was in. I love this actress. I love her work and am glad to see her leading a serious piece of work like this. It's going to be a rough ride because of the subject matter, but I had tears in my eyes watching the trailer because the acting, the work, the whole thing came across as so authentic and realistic it just moved me close to tears. I began the trailer and there was the great Gabriel Byrne and knew for sure there was no way I wasn't going to go to great lengths to see this film. The whole trailer satisfied me on every level. Ryan and Byrne. Good stuff. He was the lead in one of my top five films of all time....Miller's Crossing. Great, great film and Byrne was great in it.
