Documentaries are sometimes a hard sell now a days on streaming services because a lot of the time the information on documentaries are already known facts. There is usually no drama or suspense to keep a viewers from switching off to something else or just skipping it all together. But this may not be the case with the upcoming Netflix documentary titled Tell Me Who I Am, which in it’s trailer presents us with this documentary as a mystery. You can check it out above!
Tell Me Who I Am is being directed by Ed Perkins, who was nominated this year for his 2018 documentary short Black Sheep. This documentary is getting a lot of buzz as it is an official selection of the 2019 Telluride Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival and Hamptons International Film Festival. The story follows a man that after an accident he falls into a coma. When he wakes up the only thing he can remember is his twin brother. His twin brother works with him to help him craft his life back together one memory at a time. But what happens when he finds out that his brother has been keeping a dark past from him?
Here is the official synopsis for Tell Me Who I Am from Netflix:
When 18-year-old Alex Lewis wakes up from a coma after surviving a motorcycle accident, the world is not one he remembers. He has forgotten everything. His home. His parents. He can’t even remember his own name. The only thing he does know is that the person sitting next to him is his identical twin brother, Marcus. Alex relies on Marcus to give him his memory back; to tell him who he is. But the idyllic childhood Marcus paints for his twin conceals a dark family secret. Now, after decades of hiding the painful realities of their past, Alex and Marcus go on an extraordinary journey together to face the truth and finally discover who Alex really is. Directed by Academy Award nominee Ed Perkins, TELL ME WHO I AM is a heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful voyage that explores the blurred boundaries of memory and reality, and the emotional bonds that allow us to survive.
This looks like a very interesting film. I really hope that the secret that has been kept from the twin brother happens to be as good as the trailer makes it out to be.
