Women Search for Justice in ‘Lost Girls’

Lost Girls: An Unsolved American Mystery, a novel by author Robert Kolker, is a dark and intense true-crime story about a woman named Mari. She is a mother who is determined to search for her missing daughter when others seemed to have given up on the case. The case involves sex workers who have gone missing. This film will bring to light many problems faced by sex workers and will hopefully result in more justice for the women involved. Especially when it has been kept in the dark and forgotten about for far too long.

Lost Girls stars Amy Ryan, who plays Mari, the mother who is in search of her daughter. Other stars in the film include Miriam Shor, Oona Laurence, and Lola Kirke. The cast came together for a panel discussion about the film on Monday the 27th.  The cast hopes that this film will be impactful. They want more justice for women like Mari, who unfortunately passed away in 2016. Before Mari’s passing, she helped director Liz Garbus on the movie.



Hopefully this film will shine a light on this issue and inspire women to fight for their own justice. The film premiered this past Tuesday the 28th at the Sundance Film Festival.
