In this 2014 American movie, a fascinating woman is absent, leaving behind nothing but mystery. A man searches for her, trying to uncover clues as to her true nature. As we journey along with him, interviewing friends and associates, we begin to learn that this woman may well have been a creative genius. But as we dig even deeper, we also discover her dark side, and behavior clearly suggestive of mental illness.
If I were to tell you the woman in question would return to the proceedings, you might guess the film is David Fincher's Gone Girl. If I told you she were dead from the outset, the movie would have to be Finding Vivian Maier, directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel.
