As we read on filmstart.pl, “Silent Twins” is a movie set in the UK in the 1980s, based on the story of twins who communicate telepathically. The starting point for the “Silent Twins” scenario was the case of John and Jennifer Gibbons, born in 1963, who from the cradle were associated with a very strong mental and physical bond. The scenario is based on facts. Girls with a speech impairment not only isolate themselves from their peers from an early age, but also develop their own language, the so-called idogloss as a tool for personal communication.
According to Marjorie Wallace, who described the history of the Gibbons, since a certain period of their lives, the sisters have communicated almost without words, transmitting information through looks or gestures. When parents anxious about the situation, on the advice of doctors, tried to separate the twins, the girls fell into a state of rigid schizophrenia for several months. In their teens, the sisters are plunged into a whirlwind of self-destructive behavior. They have committed burglary, robbery, and arson, which first leads them to prison and eventually behind the walls of the infamous psychiatric hospital Broadmoor. They spent more than a decade there. This dark period of their lives will be the main theme of the movie
