The Imposter has crossed the £1M mark at the UK box office, becoming the eighth highest grossing non-music feature documentary of the last ten years.

The film, which has been playing in select cinemas across the UK for four weeks now, marks writer and director Bart Layton’s directorial debut, and has slowly but surely become something of a success, garnering strong word-of-mouth from critics and audiences alike.

Based on a true story, The Imposter tells the shocking truth of how a 23-year-old Frenchman managed to convince a grieving Texas family that he was their 16-year-old son who went missing for 3 years.

Even though it’s still screening at some cinemas, distributing partners Revolver Entertainment and Picturehouse Entertainment have since announced that The Imposter will be available to buy and rent on DVD and Blu-ray from December 31.
