If you don’t know that Errol Morris is perhaps the premier documentary filmmaker working today, you need to checkout his films for some of the most engaging cinema stories you will be told that have the extra bonus of being absolutely true.
Morris’ latest film dips into a story literally ripped from the headlines of 1970s British tabloid newspapers and involves sex, Mormons, alleged kidnappings and a tale of obsessive love that spins out of control. I’ll let the trailer below spark your interest by telling you a bit more about the story.
The film has already played at a few high-profile festivals such as Telluride and SXSW to great reviews. The rest of us will get to check it out next month when Sundance Selects releases it in theaters.
