Three Identical Strangers

Dir. Tim Wardle | USA 2018| 97 min | 12A
The astonishing true story of three 19-year-old men who make the chance discovery that they were identical triplets, separated at birth and adopted to different parents - but then later go on to uncover an extraordinary, disturbing secret about their unique situation.
Prepare to pick your jaw up off the floor as you learn about Bobby, Eddy and David - identical triplets separated at birth. Discovering one another completely by accident in 1980, when they were 19, the three strangers became instant celebrities and fixtures in magazines, talk shows and the Studio 54 dancefloor. 
But it wasn't long until questions were asked, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lawrence Wright began seeking the truth behind their separation. To reveal anymore would be unfair, but suffice to say the film includes the most shocking revelations seen in documentary cinema for quite some time...
Deservedly scooping the Special Jury Prize at Sundance, Three Identical Strangers is equal parts enthralling and upsetting, and a sad rumination on nature versus nurture. Just be sure to go in with as little prior knowledge about the story as possible, and prepare yourself for a seriously incredible story.
Tickets: £7.75/£6.00 (inc. Poly Fund)
