Based on a True Story
5 May 2020 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

"Lost Girls" is a dramatic thriller released by Netflix and based on Robert Kolker's book "Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery." The plot is engaging and based on the effort of Mari Gilbert, performed by the excellent Amy Ryan, in finding the truth about the fate of her missing daughter. The film shows the incompetence of the Suffolk police and how the victims, usually prostitutes, are considered expendable by the authorities. The serial-killer has not been found and his identity is unknown. The fate of the Gilbert family disclosed in the end is tragic. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Lost Girls - Os Crimes de Long Island" ("Lost Girls - The Crimes of Long Island")
