One of the most talked-about films at Sundance this year was Three Identical Strangers, which tells a story so peculiar that you’re better off knowing the release date (June 29) and just showing up in the theater. However, for those curious, the first trailer has now arrived, which shows off the tale of a family reunited.
“Three Identical Strangers tells an interesting story well, without too much artistic flourish but at the same time not getting in the way of that story or overstaying its welcome,” Dan Schindel said in his review. “Director Tim Wardle lays a lot on the strength of the events he’s covering, and they are indeed compelling enough on their own to hold your interest. The flipside of this is that the film has little power outside of a first viewing. It’s the kind of doc you’re best off walking into knowing as little as possible about, because possessing key details could legitimately lessen your enjoyment.”
See the trailer and poster below.
