As there was not a set of female quintuplets that existed at the time of filming, two sets of triplets had to be cast: Grace (Cecile), Bonnie (Cecile), and Erin (Annette) Morris-Vanasse; Samantha (Emilie), Brooke (Yvonne), and Emily (Marie) Gilliland. See more »
This is a very well done movie about the Canadian quintuples who had their childhoods stolen from them, offered up as a side show attraction to the world. The film does a good job of showing how naive their parents were, and the complex doctor (great job by Bridges) who believes his "protection" of them in the girls' best interests. Of course, multiple births are practically commonplace these days. This story recreates what it must have been like for a world to experience something that had not happened before.
