New York, 1980: Three complete strangers accidentally discover that they’re identical triplets, separated at birth. Adopted by three different families and reunited by an astonishing, fairy-tale coincidence, the 19-year-olds’ joyous, jaw-dropping reunion catapults them to international fame and becomes a global sensation, while it also unlocks an extraordinarily disturbing, unimaginable secret that goes beyond their own lives – and could transform our understanding of human nature forever.
“The knockout documentary ‘Three Identical Strangers’ begins as a goofy, believe-it-or-not tabloid story and slowly drifts into darker waters — the realm of horror, then of tragedy.” (Vulture)
“Tim Wardle’s engrossing and sometimes enraging documentary ‘Three Identical Strangers’ about triplets grows darker and more disturbing, before developing into a shocker.” (The New York Times)
“The less you know about ‘Three Identical Strangers’ going in, the better, so don’t read this part until after you’ve seen the movie. And you should see it, because it’s brilliantly made and contains riveting material.” (Toronto Sun)
“A documentary with a story so outlandish it might well have been rejected by a Hollywood studio had a screenwriter pitched it as the basis of a fictional movie.” (Toronto Star)
