Bart Layton's documentary
The premise of Bart Layton's documentary is sublimely preposterous: Nicholas Barclay, a kidnapped 13-year-old boy from San Antonio, Texas, is supposedly found four years later in Spain, although he's seemingly far older than he should be, looks completely different, and speaks with an ingrained foreign accent. Astonishingly, the Texas family is certain this is their lost child. A terrific tale of deception and self-deception, propelled by the presence of the smirking, cocky Barclay claimant, Frédéric Bourdin. His shameless on-camera monologues sound like the bragging and asides of a cheap Elizabethan stage villain.
