What to Watch in June

recommended image width: 1088px

From one of the most bloodcurdling psychological horror movies to ever hit the Sundance Film Festival (Hereditary) to a nostalgia-inducing, heartwarming doc about America’s most beloved children’s public television show host (Won’t You Be My Neighbor), June’s releases feature a little bit of everything on the movie-watching mood spectrum.

Among the newly released films is the 2018 Festival crowd-pleaser Three Identical Strangers, which delves into the true account of three men who discovered at age 19 that they were triplets—and that’s just the start of the story. When director Tim Wardle first came across the old news story from the 1980s and started digging deeper, it took so many unbelievable twists and turns that he knew it was “the single best documentary story I had ever come across.”

Check out all of the Sundance-supported films coming to theaters and digital platforms this month.
