A documentary that should appeal not just to the legion of Vermeer fans, but to lovers of good mystery. In 1990, in the early morning hours after St. Patrick's Day, thieves disguised as policemen gained access into Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and successfully executed the largest art heist in modern history. Rebecca Dreyfus has produced a moving account of this painting, it's acquisition, theft, and attempts at recovery spearheaded by Harold Smith, the most renowned art detective in the world who devoted the last decade of his life to solving the mystery. Stolen brings the audience on a journey to understand not just a crime, but also the nature of beauty itself - it's fragility and it's power. Winner Audience Award for best documentary Sundance Film Festival.
