Now that I've set this up a little better, you have to know how moved I am by something that seems like such a simple plot before it unravels into a story about coping and disbelief. Doing what you have to do.
Touching on the dysmorphia a bit I really love the dichotomy of plastic surgery and the presence of identical twins, I think it says a lot. Dysmorphia deals with seeing things that aren't there, no sense of self. In fact, you see yourself in negative ways that may not exist. I like how this movie brings in identical twins and the fact that the mere presence of 2 seemingly identical beings would perhaps wipe away any dysmorphia, if only the for the fact that someone exists, who looks exactly like you. There is a constant reminder that may or may not possibly help remembrance of these facts. This is something I picked up more in terms of mirror imaging and the way someone with body dysmorphia may see themselves and grow resentful. It's something to ponder but I like that this movie even makes me think of it.
I'm never about spoilers because I always hope you read these reviews and go out and watch the movies for yourselves. Here are my clues: Pay attention to all the decor in the house and the difference by the mother in behavior towards the twins. These were the 2 observations I most enjoyed attempting to decipher so hope you do too. Let me know what you thought!
