‘Tell Me Who I Am’ Trailer: Shocking Family Secrets Unfold in Latest Wild Netflix Documentary

Netflix has debuted the trailer for Tell Me Who I Am. It looks to be the next riveting, buzzed-about documentary that gets people talking, insisting you see it before it’s spoiled. “Tell Me Who I Am” was an Official Selection of the 2019 Telluride Film Festival, recently screened at the BFI London Film Festival, and will next show at this month’s Hamptons International Film Festival. What if every memory that haunts you could be erased, or even rewritten? This is the ethical dilemma that Marcus Lewis faced when his identical twin Alex awakened after a motorcycle accident and Marcus was the only person Alex recognized. With no memories at all, Alex relied entirely on his brother as he tried to understand who he was. Segmented into three acts, Ed Perkins’ documentary about the Lewis brothers, “Tell Me Who I Am,” unspools the secrets and lies that bind the two together over the course of decades. Eventually, of course, Marcus’ lies are revealed, but that’s only a small portion of a compelling and emotional story about familial bonds and the reach of trauma. Tell Me Who I Am is a very heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful voyage that explores the blurred boundaries of memory and reality, and emotional bonds that allow us to survive. This looks like a remarkably fascinating documentary about figuring out who we really are. Netflix will release the film on its global streaming platform on October 18.
