"The movie, directed by Craig Johnson (the tiny indie “True Adolescents”) from a screenplay he wrote with Mark Heyman (a writer on “Black Swan”), is keenly attuned to the bonds of siblings, especially twins. If countless movies about brothers and sisters reveal common family traits, “The Skeleton Twins” is subtler than most in evoking a mutual sympathy that might be called a cellular understanding.
Being so completely simpatico has its good and bad sides because the person who best understands you can also inflict the most painful emotional wounds. After working closely together on “Saturday Night Live,” Ms. Wiig and Mr. Hader suggest that kind of intuitive connection, even when their characters here are at loggerheads." – The New York Times
