THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS
Aug 14 - 16, 5:30 & 7:45
Stranger than fiction, this true story starts 40 years ago with a young man who has just arrived at a small upstate NY college on his first day, yet everyone seems to already know him. People tell he looks just like a guy who was a student there last year. These two finally meet, discover that they share more similarities - both adopted and with the same birthday - and realize they are identical twins mysteriously separated at birth. The story gets into the news, and then a third boy realizes he too has the same story and look: separated identical triplets! This stunningly brilliant and riveting story becomes an unexpected mystery, as their families try to figure out why none knew of the others. A journalist starts looking closer at the prestigious adoption agency that placed the boys and discovers more secrets. This Sundance special jury award winner, is the feature length debut of documentary filmmaker Tim Wardle.
