Twin Falls Idaho ★★★ 1999 (R)

Eerie romantic drama about a lonely pair of conjoined twins, Francis (Michael Polish) and Blake (Mark Polish) Falls. The handsome 25-year-olds are celebrating their birthday in a shabby hotel room on Idaho Street, which is where hooker Penny (Hicks) shows up. Blake (the strong twin) intends Penny as a present for his fragile brother Francis, whose weakened heart is seemingly kept beating by Blake's sheer will. Initially repulsed, Penny becomes fascinated by their situation and begins to fall for Blake. But just what will happen if Francis does indeed die? The talented Polish brothers are identical but not “Siamese” twins. 110m/C VHS, DVD .
