The Silent Twins

1 hour 53 minutes


Maine Film Center

Railroad Square Cinema, 17 Railroad Square, Waterville, ME

THE SILENT TWINS is based on a truly remarkable and nuanced true story: June and Jennifer Gibbons were real-life identical twins who grew up in Wales and became known as "the silent twins" because of their refusal to communicate with anyone other than each other, part of a larger community in which theirs was also the only Black family in town. So they created a rich, fascinating world to escape the reality of their own lives, a world that lasted through their childhood. Yet they were to inevitably, eventually, encounter the “real” world. Agnieszka Smoczynska sensitively directs Letitia Wright and Tamara Lawrance in THE SILENT TWINS.
