Abducted in Plain Sight (2017)

Abducted in Plain Sight (2017) -- https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3444312/?ref_=rvi_tt
Has anyone else seen this documentary? It concerns a case from the 70s where an adult man was obsessed with an adolescent girl. We watch a lot of true crime movies and shows, so we weren't shocked by the story, but the actions and reactions of those involved were simply bizarre. If this had been made as a fiction film, it would have seemed far-fetched.

I haven't seen it or heard of it, but thanks for the alert. Sounds intriguing to this true crime aficionado.

Check it out and then share your thoughts. Our reaction was very similar to a horror movie experience. But instead of yelling "Don't go in there!" at the screen, we were yelling, "Why aren't you calling the police?" or "How can you think that's OK?".

Since you're in Toronto, it's worth noting that the Toronto Public Library has disc copies of this on order, in case you've got a card. Although I'm sure it's available to stream already somewhere.

Thanks for the heads up. Probably rent it from Google play tonight.
