Top 3 Movies about Missing persons

Celebrating the broadcast of the French drama Gone, in which the disappearance of a woman sparks a deadly rumor in a small village, we have selected three must-see movies about missing persons. Just make sure not to miss them!

Gone Girl

A quintessential film when it comes to the subject of missing persons in cinema, Gone Girl presents maybe the best performances yet seen from leading actors Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. This psychological thriller follows the story of a man that sees the spotlight turned on him when he's suspected of killing his wife after her sudden disappearance on their 5th wedding anniversary.

Pike's performance was praised, and she received nominations for an Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Golden Globe Award, for Best Actress. Additional nominations included a Golden Globe Award for Best Director for David Fincher.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Based on the 2005 novel of the same name by Stieg Larsson and also directed by David Fincher The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo stars Daniel Craig as journalist Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander, as they lead an investigation to find out what happened to a woman from a wealthy family who disappeared 40 years prior.

The movie was chosen by National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2011 and was a candidate for numerous awards, winning, among others, the Academy Award for Best Film Editing.

The Imposter

Shocking as few other, this is a documentary that will make you think twice before opening your door to somebody. Directed by Bart Layton, The Imposter recounts the 1997 case of the French confidence trickster Frédéric Bourdin, who impersonated Nicholas Barclay, a Texas boy who disappeared at the age of 13 in 1994.

The documentary was nominated for six British Independent Film Awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Debut Director, and Best Documentary. It was also shortlisted for an Academy Award for Best Documentary.
