Remarkably well made for a first time filmmaker, Twinsters is easily my favorite documentary of 2015 thus far! We follow Samantha, a Korean born girl adopted by American parents, as she discovers that she might have a twin sister that nobody ever knew existed. Well paced, funny, and emotional to the perfect degree, Twinsters feels unlike most documentaries and is guaranteed to entertain. But beyond that, it will also fascinate and force you to explore nature, nurture, and what family really means. I could not possibly recommend this film more! ~ A
