Director: Agnieszka Smocyznnska/2022/UK, Poland, USA/113mins

The Silent Twins is the astounding true story of twin sisters June and Jennifer Gibbons who grew up in Haverfordwest and only communicated with one another after suffering torrid abuse as children. After being sentenced at Swansea Crown Court for crimes including arson and petty theft, they were incarcerated for 11 years in one of Britain’s most dangerous institutions, Broadmoor Hospital, alongside the likes of the Yorkshire Ripper and Ronnie Kray.
