If you're one of the New Yorkers who contributed "The Imposter"'s solid run at the domestic box office (in its opening weekend it was released on a single screen in Manhattan, and found the best per-theater-average of any film in release as a result), chances are you have a lot of questions. The Bart Layton-directed film was one of the most buzzed about documentaries to premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, because it posed more questions than it answered. The film centers on a 1997 case in which a French man living in Spain impersonated Nicholas Barclay, a missing adolescent from San Antonio, Texas by convincing the boy's family that he was the kid. If that sounds too crazy to believe, you'd be wrong. The joy in watching "The Imposter" comes from the mysteries that continue to creep into the tale, right up until the end credits. Honor Roll »
