UKJF:Three Identical Strangers

Cinema

Directed by Tim Wardle| 2018 | UK |Starring Silvi Alzetta-Reali, Eddy Galland, Ron Guttman | 1h 37m| Certificate 12A

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.

Raised by their respective adoptive families within a hundred-mile radius of each other, triplet siblings Robert Shafran, Eddy Galland and David Kellman were oblivious to the fact each had two identical brothers until a chance meeting brought them together, aged 19, for the first time since birth. Their astounding story, which became a worldwide sensation in the early 1980s, catapulted them to fame with the trio landing a cameo in Desperately Seeking Susan and becoming a fixture in Studio 54. But even more incredible was the reason, unknown to them at first, which led to their separation in the first place. This astonishing, stranger-than-fiction documentary masterfully tells a story whose sanguine elements could not mitigate the gross injustice at its core.

“As spellbinding as a great psychological thriller.” Seattle Times

“Entertaining, thought-provoking and filled with surprises, it scores the equivalent of a cinematic hat trick.” CNN
