Lost Girls, a true crime literary account of the Gilgo Beach murders was written by journalist Robert Kolker in 2014. The Netflix movie version of the acclaimed book is directed by Liz Garbus.

When Mari Gilbert's (Academy Award® nominee Amy Ryan) daughter disappears, police inaction drives her own investigation into the gated Long Island community where Shannan was last seen. Her search brings attention to over a dozen murdered sex workers. From Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus, LOST GIRLS is inspired by true events.
