Three Identical Strangers (12A)


Documentary about a set of New York triplets who are separated at birth.

The critical consensus

This stranger than fiction story is powerful, emotional and unforgettable.

*****Nikki Baughan, The List, 26/11/2018

Wardle tells a compelling story of the three happy boys who became three unhappy men, their faces shining with a kind of ecstasy in their youth, then muted with sadness and bewilderment in middle age.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 28/11/2018

The way Brit director Tim Wardle gradually zooms out to show the devastation wrought upon their lives is both heartbreaking and chilling.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 29/11/2018

The film begins in an upbeat and charming fashion as a feelgood, human interest story but grows gradually darker.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 29/11/2018

This documentary about triplets separated at birth is slightly sinister and very watchable.

****(*)Simran Hans, The Observer, 02/12/2018

Amazing family documentary that plays like the wildest thriller.
