Filmmaker Aaron Kunkel fashions an absorbing true-crime narrative with a danceable beat from the testimonies of exploited pop celebrities, bilked investors, criminal investigators, and not-so-quietly aghast onlookers in “The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story.”

Briskly efficient in its construction and execution, the film focuses on the high times and low dealings of the Orlando, Florida-based music impresario and Ponzi scheme swindler, Lou Pearlman, who famously launched the groups *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys.

Pearlman infamously used the boy bands’ success to provide a patina of legitimacy for his complex web of bank and investor fraud.

“The Boy Band Con: The Lou Pearlman Story” will be premiere April 3 on YouTube Premium.
