Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Although it struggles to really get inside the true story that inspired it, The Silent Twins is still a well-acted and poignant dramatization of actual events.

Biopic doesn't go deep enough; sex, violence, swearing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Silent Twins is a challenging drama based on the real story of identical twins Jennifer (Tamara Lawrance) and June (Letitia Wright) Gibbons, who created an insular world for themselves and wouldn't communicate with anyone else. The film -- which is set in 1960s and '70s Wales -- has moments of violence, including intense physical fighting, attempted death by suicide, bullying, arson, and more. Scenes of the sisters being separated and institutionalized are upsetting, as are some of the animated sequences. There's also strong language ("f--k," "c--k," etc.), sexual situations, and partial nudity (from the waist up). Characters smoke and use drugs.
