Watch: Trailer for Welsh Identical Twins Thriller 'The Library Suicides'
"If you leave enough behind, then death isn't the end." Soda Pictures has debuted an official UK trailer for The Library Suicides, a film from Wales made entirely in the Welsh language. It's adapted from Fflur Dafydd’s bestselling novel titled Y Llyfrgell, the original Welsh title, and it's about two identical twin sisters who investigate the suicide (or potential murder) of their mother, who was a librarian at the National Library of Wales. Actress Catrin Stewart (best known from "Doctor Who" and "Stella") plays dual roles as both daughters, and the cast also includes Dyfan Dwyfor, Ryland Teifi, Carwyn Glyn and Sharon Morgan. The way this trailer plays out, I would say it looks more fun than it does "thrilling". Take a look.
Here's the official trailer for Euros Lyn's The Library Suicides, direct from YouTube:
The Library Suicides (Y Llyfrgell), the debut feature from award-winning director Euros Lyn, and based on Fflur Dafydd’s bestselling novel Y Llyfrgell, is an offbeat thriller, set in the National Library of Wales, and explores the secrets and lies at the heart of storytelling, and asks who has the right to tell the story. Twin sisters Ana and Nan seek revenge on the man they believe murdered their mother. Catrin Stewart and Dyfan Dwyfor star in this noir, offbeat thriller set in Aberystwyth. The film is directed by Euros Lyn, who has directed episodes of "Doctor Who", "Last Tango in Halifax", and "Daredevil". It's adapted by the author Fflur Dafydd. The Library Suicides opens in UK theaters this August, but has no US release date yet.

Oh, so far I prefer the language over the plot. But who knows, maybe plot will get better, too ...

Am I missing something here? I watched the trailer and I'm confused. I read the subtitles....still confused. Read the synopsis underneath....and it's confusing. WTF is this even about?! Initially someone was going to write a book about this woman, but the twins are gunning them down because their mom claimed someone drove her to suicide? Is that the jist of it?....
