I was watching a film last night, and there is a female character who cannot understand her husband's mood changes. It turns out she is married to identical twins.

I am sure that I read this same plot in a book, but cannot remember which one. It's definitely not the book of the film.

The Prestige? Fantastic film.

What was the film called?

I googled and there's a book called Deceptions, but that's female twins swapping places.

Yes, it was the Prestige smile, didn't mention it in case people hadn't seen it.

But I'm sure that I've read that same twist in a book too.

No, not Deceptions.

Dead Ringers is another extraordinary film that is based on the same premise. A younger Jeremy Irons plays both twins <swoon>

It's sort of in one of the Number One Ladies Detective Agency books where a Dr and his twin are swapping about. One is qualified, one is not.

Double Take by Brenda Joyce?

Ah no, that's sisters again.
