Three Identical Strangers

There is a certain mystique about twins, especially triplets and quadruplets. When I see them in their crib or playing outside, I always wonder what they know about each other that others don’t. It can be seen as cute or downright creepy to those of us who aren’t twins. After being separated at birth, three triplets are reunited in this documentary.

Three Identical Strangers (2018)
PG-13 | 1h 36min | Documentary | 19 January 2018 (USA)
In 1980 New York, three young men who were all adopted meet each other and find out they’re triplets who were separated at birth. Then they discover why.
Director: Tim Wardle
Stars: Silvi Alzetta-Reali, Eddy Galland, Ron Guttman

This documentary held my interest to the end. Imagine walking down a busy street and seeing YOURSELF walking toward you. How long would it take to start up a conversation? You’d be relatives right away I think! After discovering your own twin and seeing all the things you have in common, how about this: You discover a triplet as well! That’s what happens in essence here in this documentary. It takes you through the reuniting encounter and chronicles all this very famous set of triplets went through in the 80’s. And then, alas, a dark secret that may alter the way these men see the world forever after. This one is a must see, 10/10.
