‘Three Identical Strangers’ hits the documentary jackpot

“Three Identical Strangers” is an astonishing documentary, a look at how a feel-good, made-for-TV “separated at birth” story took on an unexpected, more sinister tone. Tim Wardle’s film works on multiple levels — from an underlying mystery to medical ethics to a rumination on the nature-vs.-nurture debate. Entertaining, thought-provoking and filled with surprises, it scores the equivalent of a cinematic hat trick.
