Girl in the Picture movie review (2022)

Given the shocking and sensational nature of the subject, this should probably have been an episode of “Dateline NBC” or another true crime series. Aerial photos, re-introductions and some lengthy and repetitive interviews fill the story of feature films. And yet it is difficult to shake the feeling of sadness that persists afterwards, as well as the disturbing reminder of the evil that exists in this world.

After Tonya Hughes died of her injuries at the age of 20, some of her fellow dancers at the Passion Strip Club in Tulsa tried to contact her mother. What they learned from that conversation was that their deceased friend was not actually named Tonya Hughes. So who was she? Getting to the bottom of this mystery has confused both old friends and veteran scientists for decades.

Without giving too much away – because you really should experience these atrocities and revelations even if you choose to watch this – Tonya and her elderly, overprotective husband, Clarence, lived many lives under many names in many states across the country. Who they presented who varied from place to place, depending on their needs at the moment. Friends from high school in Forest Park, Georgia, remember a lively, ambitious teenager who was thrilled to receive a scholarship to study aeronautical engineering at Georgia Tech. But that girl’s name was Sharon Marshall. And there was something wrong with her relationship with her father, Warren Marshall, who did not let her talk on the phone, but who also took out a full-page yearbook ad congratulating her on her achievements – complete with a picture of Sharon with a sexy look in her eyes.

Borgman takes us back to that time with ultra-80s pictures of a young woman with big, blond hair and even bigger dreams. But her best friend at the time, Jenny – who recognized Sharon years later from a TV news segment about the mystery surrounding her identity – also gives the film’s most harrowing anecdote about the kind of abuse Sharon was routinely subjected to from her father.

And that’s what really sticks with you afterwards: the depth of depravity “Girl in the Picture” depicts. The interviews with characters such as retired FBI Special Agent Joe Fitzpatrick may look standard and familiar, placed in a mid-century dinner over a cup of coffee. But the deep shake in his eyes when he remembers the details of the case is unmistakable and unexpected.
