I was expecting some emotional documentary but story got very dark, very fast. JUST WOW. You need to see this one without knowing anything about it. It raised so many questions in my head. A MUST SEE.

A very interesting story that proves true life can sometimes be stranger than fiction. A bit manipulative but still worth a watch to see this incredible story.

Cannot say that this is the type of documentary which I am usually looking for but somehow it got me interested. I was surprised that it got so dark probably because I did not know the background story and never heard about those triplets before. Unfortunately sometimes I felt like some emotions were fake or not that strong as it should be. Something like creators told them try to look more sad etc..

I did not expect to be crying so much after such a joyous two-thirds. [spoiler]I disagree _to a small extent_ that separating them lead to mental health issues, but teaching children good cognitive behavior (CBT) skills isn't exactly in our modern curriculum or even understood by parents. Hell, I understood it pretty well _and_ attended classes with my daughter but couldn't really teach her what I knew. **About this story,** I thought (and wtf do I know...) children being let go to the State are more prone to the conditions their parents had -- even though I don't believe most are, "heritable." The human reward system is taught, or not -- barring any early trauma. I did think banging their heads after being separated was clearly linked to the withdrawal from the dopamine they got while together -- like what Dr. Gabor Mate says happens when infants are separated from their mothers (and takes several days to re-establish when re-united as a _defense_ mechanism **because the absence of that dopamine is interpreted as painful.**) [/spoiler]

Whenever I watch a movie or a documentary I try to avoid knowing much about what I am about to watch as humanly possible.  Quite often I go by the score on rotten tomatoes and maybe the first line of the description.  If both seem agreeable I might give  it a go.  

I knew the basic premise o More

I was not impressed by this. The producers played this up as an extraordinary set of events that brought these brothers together and a conspiracy that created the separation in their lives. The fact of the matter was that all three of them [spoiler]grew up in the same area, and two of them ended u More

**_Interesting and reasonably well-made, but morally questionable in how it presents some of the material_**

> _I'm sure it all started with some distinguished psychiatrist and a roomful of people, and the brilliant idea arises of a new way of studying nature versus nurture. "Okay, we’ll separa More
