Bart Layton’s The Imposter premiered to acclaim in 2012, eventually earning a theatrical release. The film went on to air at other international and local festivals, earning the Grand Jury Documentary prize at the Miami International Film festival as well as earning the Best Documentary distinction at the British Independent Film Awards. The bottom line: a lot of people like it, and if you haven't gotten a chance to catch the documentary, you’ll be able to do so when The Imposter hits DVD on January 22, 2013.

Last year featured a slew of great documentary DVD releases, including The Ambassador and Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, to name a few. Now, 2013 seems to be starting off with another bang with the release of The Imposter. The flick follows Frédéric Bourdin, a Frenchman who has posed as missing persons in the past. In the late nineties, Bourdin claimed to be a Texas boy who went missing in 1994. The documentary follows the path the man took as an imposter, as well as the potential reasons why the boy’s family so readily accepted his story and his foreign accent.

The DVD release is coming from Indomina Releasing, and while it won’t sport any bonus features, it will run pretty cheaply. In fact, you can pre-order it on Amazon for only $13.49 and if you want to go cheaper, you only need to look as far as a digital copy and Walmart. You can check out the cover art for the set, full of critics saying nice things about the movie, below.
