Synopsis


The Double
Richard Ayoade's stylized adaptation of Fyodor Dostoevsky's novella The Double stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, a meek office drone who bumbles his way through his day, forever pining for a pretty girl (Mia Wasikowska) who lives near him and working hard for a boss (Wallace Shawn) who doesn't see any of his accomplishments. One day Simon discovers that he has a new co-worker, James Simon (also Eisenberg), who looks just like him and possesses all of the confidence and charisma that Simon lacks. Simon befriends this new person, and soon the put-upon man is asserting himself. However, he begins to fear he's becoming just another pawn in James' relentless self-interests. The Double screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    I was really interested in seeing this movie, until I saw it. It's an odd multiple identity story of the shy guy bold guy kind. I wasn't impressed with this movie nor the acting. Stay away.

    Richard Ayoade follows 2010's Submarine with a thoroughly enjoyable film that feels like the cinematic lovechild of Wes Anderson and David Lynch. It's perfectly cast and nicely paced, too.
