Movies about off-screen characters can be as engaging as ones about on-screen ones. We will lose ourselves in movies about individuals who either go missing or are about to--through accident or intention. Some reappear, others do not, while still others may have gone underground. (Even real-life individuals have not been exempt--such as Agatha Christie, Butch Cassidy, and Ambrose Bierce.) GROUP LEADER: Jeffrey Long has been a film critic for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette since 2008, and has taught numerous other film courses for W.I.S.E. and Becker College.
