Movie Info

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 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 a journey together to face the truth and finally discover who Alex really is. Directed by Ed Perkins, TELL ME WHO I AM explores the blurred boundaries of memory and reality, and the emotional bonds that allow us to survive.

Critic Reviews for Tell Me Who I Am

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (11)

It's tragic but utterly compelling viewing as director Ed Perkins allows the two men to share their stories -- and their lifelong anguish -- direct to camera before they sit down face-to-face for a final, painful catharsis.

November 7, 2019 | Full Review…

It was one of those stories that was simply too awful to need much elaboration - it was bleak, creepy, dismal, sad.

November 1, 2019 | Full Review…

The way this film is constructed is a suspenseful mystery, and eventually it gives way to great catharsis.

October 21, 2019 | Full Review…

A documentary so harrowing and horrific that it can only bear to scratch at the surface of its remarkable story.

October 18, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

That Perkins has honed in on such sympathetic subjects makes it almost impossible not to be moved, even if Tell Me often feels less like forensic truth than an intriguing fragment of something that may, in the end, be impossible to tell in full.

October 18, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

In a scripted thriller, one can bet that unlocking the source of Alex's trauma would bring all of his memories flooding back. Here, the process merely points the way to an even deeper mystery.
