What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Three Identical Strangers is a documentary that tells the amazing story of three identical male triplets who reunited as young adults after being separated at birth. The first part of the film paints an optimistic picture of the brothers' joy in finding each other and their immediate connection. But as the details unfold, it becomes clear that this miraculous, heartwarming coincidence is the result of much darker events, which have major consequences for the triplets' lives. Expect occasional swearing, including "bitch," "crap," and "s--t," as well as a few suggestive references and mentions of "partying" and smoking. A bigger concern for parents may be the constant talk of the siblings being kept apart, serious mental illness, and psychological tests being performed on children -- as well as a frank discussion of suicide. The film delves into the conflict between science and ethics, and it also conveys the importance of empathy and sensitivity to others' needs.
