Letitia Wright (Black Panther) and Tamara Lawrence (The Long Song) play twin sisters with an eerie past and an uncertain future in this uneasy, Cannes-selected drama based on a true story from the director of 2015's The Lure.
June (Wright) and Jennifer Gibbons (Lawrence) are twins from the only Black family in a small town in Wales in the 1970s and 80s. Feeling isolated from that unwelcoming community, the pair turn inward and reject communication with everyone but each other, retreating into their own fantasy world of artistic inspiration and adolescent desires. After a spree of vandalism inspired by an American boy they both idolise, the girls, now teenagers, are summarily sentenced to Broadmoor, an infamous psychiatric hospital, where they face the choice to separate and survive or die together.
