Storyline

What if every memory that haunts you could be erased? What if something truly horrific had happened to you and the person who loves you most could wipe that from your mind? Would you want them to? This is the ethical dilemma that 18-year-old Marcus Lewis faced when his identical twin Alex awakened after a motorcycle accident and Marcus was the only person Alex recognized. With no memories at all, Alex relied entirely on his brother as he tried to understand who he was. Working from an autobiography by the twins, Perkins and the Lewis brothers craft a powerfully cinematic adaptation that helps the audience explore their incredible story and remarkable 35-year post-accident journey. It's a profoundly moving examination of memory and trauma, personal responsibility and, ultimately, love. Written by London Film Festival

Affecting, distressing and moving
25 October 2019 | by agasi999See all my reviews

The best way to watch this is to see it without reading anything about it including any reviews. Its unsettling and deeply moving. My only criticism is that it feels a bit repetitive towards the middle portion and the pace slackened while they could have explored the history a bit more.
