Young single mother Amanda has stopped believing love exists. She goes about her life, enjoying her independence and caring for her daughter and her dog, until she is introduced to Casper on Facebook. It doesn’t take long for Amanda to fall for Casper. He seems funny and charming, well-traveled and connected. When a number of other wealthy-looking people begin to message her on Facebook about Casper, it’s revealed he is the heir to one of the richest families in Denmark. He says he isn’t interested in money or status and only wants someone to share his life with. But is Casper’s story too good to be true? As their relationship progresses, certain details of Casper’s life don’t add up, and Amanda soon finds herself trapped in an elaborate web of lies. THE STRANGER is a documentary with a unique twist, as the real people who experienced the events reenact them cinematically, telling their stories along the way. An unsettling and captivating viewing experience, you won’t be able to look away until the whole truth is revealed. (In Danish with subtitles) —G.S.
