Silver Screen Weekly - What's Coming Up At The Cinema - From Friday 9 December

Our film critic and media correspondent has been looking and trawling the new releases. Here's what you can see on the big screen this week!

The Silent Twins (18)

Letitia Wright and Tamara Lawrence star in director Agnieszka Smoczyńska’s powerful biographical Polish/UK drama about the lives of June and Jennifer Gibbons, two Welsh twin sisters that were institutionalised in Broadmoor Hospital, after a few youthful acts of rebellion, and whom refused to communicate with anyone but each other. Adapted from the book by Marjorie Wallace, The Silent Twins is a well acted and often poignant look at a compelling true story that, like its two figures, has been the subject of much discussion and thought over the years.
