Mystery drama films based on true crime cases can be a tough pill to swallow. Because you know the story has been based on true events, the element of mystery becomes all the more real. Netflix’s original mystery drama film Lost Girls takes the viewer on a haunting ride through an unsolved murder case committed by one of the most notorious serial killers.

Based on the book Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery by Robert Kolker, Lost Girls stars Amy Ryan as Mari Gilbert, the mother of 24-year-old Shannan Gilbert (Sarah Wisser), who disappears without a trace. Mari takes it upon herself to push law enforcement to look into her disappearance as well as the dozen unsolved murders of young sex workers that her own investigation uncovers in Long Island.

Lost Girls first made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2020 before making its worldwide streaming debut on Netflix in March 2020. The film earned mostly positive reception from critics, holding a 73% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If you’re a fan of true crime documentaries, then you will definitely find yourself wrapped up in the mystery of Lost Girls.
