The Silent Twins

Agnieszka Smoczynska | 2022 | 112 MINS
The astounding true story of twin sisters who only communicated with one another. As a result, they created a rich, fascinating world to escape the reality of their own lives.

In Detail

A heartfelt, absorbing new film telling the true story of June and Jennifer Gibbons: the “silent twins”, young black women who grew up in Haverfordwest in Wales communicating with no one but each other.

They were effectively abandoned by the school and care systems but wrote reams of intensely imaginative poems and stories, with June even self-publishing a novel. It gained them a reputation as authentic outsider artists when, in 1981, the twins were committed to Broadmoor hospital for arson and theft.

This is an engrossing, well-acted story – disturbing, but also tender and sad.
