When Mari Gilbert's (Academy Award® nominee Amy Ryan) daughter disappears, police inaction drives her own investigation into the gated Long Island community where Shannan was last seen. Her search brings attention to over a dozen murdered sex workers Mari will not let the world forget. From Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus, LOST GIRLS is inspired by true events detailed in Robert Kolker's "Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery." World premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
The movie is set in 2010 and the filmmakers have the characters use flip-phones to show this. However, they use modern flip-phones. Mari is using a Alcatel Go Flip or Go Flip 2, which did not come out until 2017. See more »
It's not your daughter, Mrs. Gilbert, which is why it's important that you don't talk to the media.

This is the first review I have ever written because this movie deserved more credit than it was given. It was not perfect and some of the acting was clunky, while others were exceptional. You really feel the mothers energy throughout and can grasp the love that truly was there despite all of their familial shortcomings.
I am not sure how true this story was , but I hope the police were not this inept. I couldn't be sure if it was just over the top writing or not.
Overall, this was a good watch. Suspenseful with a decent enough cast.
