Three Identical Strangers Movie Review

Identity Crisis

All I knew, or thought I knew, about "Three Identical Strangers" was that it was a documentary about triplets who were unaware of the fact that they had any identical brothers. Ten minutes into it, I remembered that it had been a big news item years earlier. However, what I previously knew covered only a fraction of the entire story.

For most of the first hour, this is a joy-fest, with three identical brothers that were separated at birth and adopted out to three different families, none of whom knew that they were getting one out of three triplets.

Upon finding their brothers, they are all deliriously happy about it and eventually move in together and become mini-celebrities in New York City, appearing on lots of television shows and then opening a restaurant called "Triplets". The restaurant was an enormous success, bring in a million dollars in its first year. Soon afterwards, the triplets disappeared from the public eye.

The rest of "Three Identical Strangers" examines how they were separated at birth and adopted to three different families, and the impact and toll it eventually took on all concerned. It is no longer a joy-fest. It's an examination of something incredibly nefarious. To further explain the details of it, would ruin your experience seeing it, and it is a story definitely worth exploring.

I will tell you a few things that won't ruin it for you but might make you more curious. All of the triplets were placed by the same adoption agency. One ended up with a fairly rich family, another with a middle class family, and the third with a blue-collar family. All were placed with families that had older adopted sisters of the same age. What a set of odd coincidences.

Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.
