No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Twin Sisters has the engrossing quality of a big historical novel and about the same level of sentimental artistry.
A handsomely appointed, solidly acted feature.
Its production values are rich, [and] the performances of its three sets of actresses are strong.
War in Twin Sisters doesn't illuminate people's lives-it exists to prolong a weepy epic-length separation drama for the satisfaction of the Danielle Steele crowd.
This war film without a single explosion is about what war does to people's thinking and reasoning and how it leads to prejudice that can even break the bonds of sisterhood.
