Docs: The Lost Sons (2021)

Drama rooted in tabloid-worthy family secrets meets colorful labyrinthine plotting of the type which might be at home in a Carl Hiaasen or Elmore Leonard novel in the documentary The Lost Sons, which recently enjoyed its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. A stranger-than-fiction slice of investigative self-discovery, director Ursula Macfarlane’s movie serves in many ways as a complementary bookend to the earlier Three Identical Strangers – no great surprise, given that it is produced by RAW Productions and slated for release via CNN Films, the same company and distributor, respectively, behind that Emmy-nominated 2018 movie.
