Netflix users have said they were left “wrecked” after watching the new documentary, Tell Me Who I Am. 

They also praised the twin brothers, Alex and Marcus Lewis, for their bravery in sharing their story.

The description for the documentary reads:

“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, the documentary is an exploration of the blurred boundaries of memory and reality, and the emotional bonds that allow us to survive.

And after Tell Me Who I Am landed on Netflix on Friday, October 17, viewers have taken to social media to share their thoughts.
