Movie Info

On October 17, 1974, 12 year old Jan Broberg was kidnapped by her next-door neighbor and parents' best friend. Abducted In Plain Sight is a feature length documentary about the stranger-than-fiction, true story of the Brobergs; an Idaho family who fell under the spell of a sociopathic neighbor with designs on their twelve-year-old daughter. The film tells the story of one family's struggle with desire, deceit, faith and forgiveness. The Brobergs' troubling admissions reveal epic failures and untold personal dramas that point to the biggest tragedy of all -- that these crimes could have been prevented.

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (5)

  • It unpacks too many bizarre events in a short time frame to allow for much additional analysis. And the Broberg family, confessional to a fault, are primed more for honesty than for self-inspection.

  • ... it's a decently made one and it has a good way of telling its story. It has an important message in that it wants to help prevent other families from going through this.

  • The fact that all five of the Brobergs are emotionally healthy enough recount the details of this unthinkable period is a blessing.

    June 8, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Disturbing docu about '70s pedophile; violence, sex.

    May 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A complete and informative movie regarding a bizarre case of obsession and mischief. It's scary to admit this actually happened. [Full review in Spanish].

    March 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • I have not been glued to a screen like this in years.
