Amy Ryan hunts for her daughter in crime trailer for Lost Girls

February 25th, 2020 | by vBollywood Author

The first trailer for the upcoming Netflix mystery Lost Girls makes one thing clear: Do not mess with Amy Ryan.

Oscar-nominated documentarian Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?, Showtime’s The Fourth Estate) helms the true-crime drama, which follows a distraught mother, Mari Gilbert (the Academy Award-nominated Ryan), as she relentlessly pressures law enforcement to find her missing daughter. In the process, her search inadvertently kicks up investigations into several old murder cases involving young female sex workers killed along Long Island’s South Shore.

She deals with shady detectives who, upon coming across multiple bodies unrelated to her daughter’s disappearance, makes attempt to bury their findings. But, Gilbert suspects a cover-up gives a good fight.

“No one’s talking about our girls. And when they do, it’s ‘prostitute,’ ‘hooker,’ never ‘mother,’ ‘daughter,’ and it’s our job to make sure these girls are not forgotten,” she says. “I have been dismissed and ignored, but one thing I won’t be is silenced.”

After the series of events that the film presents, the real-life Mari Gilbert was found dead in the summer of 2016, with local news reporting that she was murdered by her other daughter.

Adapted from Robert Kolker’s book Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery, the upcoming film version features an ensemble cast including Jojo Rabbit breakout Thomasin McKenzie, Gabriel Byrne, Oona Laurence, and Lola Kirke.

Netflix will release Lost Girls to select theaters and on its streaming platform on March 13, after the movie world-premieres at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. Watch the first trailer above.
