WATCH: Netflix release powerful trailer for true-life murder mystery Lost Girls

This has been immediately added to our must-watch list.

The immense talent behind Lost Girls is something that really needs to be noted:

Directed by two-time Oscar-nominee Liz Garbus (What Happened, Miss Simone?), with a script by Michael Werwie (Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Wicked and Vile), and a cast headed by Oscar-nominee Amy Ryan (Birdman, Gone Baby Gone), Thomasin McKenze (Jojo Rabbit, Leave No Trace), and Ireland's own Gabriel Bryne, the movie has some pedigree behind it.

Then there is the topic of the movie itself, which is pretty much guaranteed to get people talking, especially considering it is based on some shocking true events:

"When 24-year-old Shannan Gilbert mysteriously disappears one night, her mother Mari (Amy Ryan) embarks on a dark journey that finds her face to face with hard truths about her daughter, herself, and police bias.

"Determined to find her daughter at all costs, Mari retraces Shannan's last known steps, driving her own investigation to an insular gated community near the desolate outer banks of Long Island. Her discoveries force law enforcement and the media to uncover more than a dozen unsolved murders of sex workers, young lives Mari will not let the world forget."

The movie is set to have its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Tuesday 28 January, and soon afterwards, Lost Girls will be available to watch on Netflix from Friday 13 March.
