Joyful and engaging
A twist on the story of finding one’s true soulmate, Twinsters takes us inside one young woman’s quest to uncover her past, her family, and herself. It’s a fascinating true story told with great joy and love.
Such a wonderful and human story. I loved this movie. "Twinsters" will make you smile, and wish you had a twin!
Saw this film in the theaters. What starts as an adorable story of two twins finding each other (don’t worry not giving anything away!) evolves into a moving, deeply affecting story about the meaning of family, the meaning of culture and the meaning of sisterhood. Truly a beautiful, beautiful documentary.
