Imagine suddenly finding out you have an identical twin. And as if that wasn’t crazy enough… later discovering you have yet another one.
That’s what unfolded in 1980, when three strangers in the US discovered they were identical triplets that had been separated at birth. Their reactions and seeing them getting to know one another is more than fascinating enough to base an entire feature documentary around, but Three Identical Strangers begins to dig further, looking into why and how they were separated in the first place.
From the early reviews and the highly intriguing trailer below, it appears director Tim Wardle uncovers a story with more twists and turns than a Hollywood thriller. The truth, as they say, is stranger than fiction. We’re very keen to know more here.
Three Identical Strangers will be hitting select US cinemas on June 29.
