Seminal documentarist Errol Morris turns his spotlight onto the strange case of Joyce McKinney, who, in 1977, was accused of abducting her boyfriend and absconding with him to Devon. The ensuing media scrum ensured McKinney stayed in the headlines, but was the true story ever revealed?
A compelling story told with Morris's usually flair. Still, hard not to think of it as a disappointment by the director's exalted standards and a missed opportunity to explore society's dysfunctional relationship with its media.
