Documentaries 2018: Which NonFiction Features Succeeded?

Three Identical Strangers, Tim Wardle’s film about identical triplets who were separated at birth and adopted by three different families, only to be reunited by chance years later, enjoyed the best per-screen-average for a documentary this year.

It earned $171,503 over the weekend, opening in just five locations, about $34,301 per-theater average.

This summer has been especially rewarding for documentaries. Three Identical Strangers follows two sleeper hits, RBG and Won’t You Be My Neighbor.”

One docu has already crossed the $10 million mark and a second non-fiction film is close behind. It’s even possible Three Identical Strangers may join this group.
